Message from the Director of School
Hamilton County Schools is committed to excellence with a vision that all graduates leave high school Future Ready and prepared for success. Every student deserves access to an excellent teacher. Every school deserves an excellent leader and the resources to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners. The district's strategic plan, Future Ready 2023, guides the path to academic excellence and focuses everyone in the community on five areas of action: Accelerating Student Achievement, Future Ready Students, Great teachers and Leaders, Efficient and Effective Operations and an Engaged Community.
Hamilton County Schools serves over 44,000 students and is a district comprised of urban, suburban, and rural school communities. Five distinct learning communities: Rock Point, Harrison Bay, Opportunity Zone, North River, and Missionary Ridge, make up the school district with each serving between 8,000-10,000 students.
The 2018-2019 school year, proved to be historic in student achievement for Hamilton County Schools. The district achieved Level 5 in every area for student academic growth. Additionally, 45 of the district's 78 schools were Level 5 schools, and 32 were Reward schools. With support from the community, Hamilton County Schools can continue to improve student achievement and fulfill the vision of students being Future Ready. Thank you for your partnership in the district's quest for excellence as we work together to become the smartest community in the South.
