Hamilton School District Overview
Hamilton School District is recognized as a leader in Wisconsin – not only for its high expectations and outstanding academic achievement, but for a caring and supportive community that takes pride in its schools. We produce excellent results while being one of the lowest spending school districts in southeastern Wisconsin.
Consider results of its commitment to students and the community:
• Among Wisconsin’s 367 K-12 school districts, Hamilton had the third highest overall score on the State Report Card and was highest for student achievement, second highest for mathematics performance and third highest for reading and language arts results.
• Hamilton High School consistently is named to prestigious national lists that judge schools for academic rigor and achievement including Newsweek Magazine’s “America’s Best High Schools,” Washington Post’s “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” and the Advanced Placement’s “AP Honor Roll.”
• Hamilton’s Aa1 bond rating by Moody’s Investor Services places it in the top five percent of Wisconsin school districts in terms of financial health.
• The Hamilton Education Foundation has issued more than $1.4 million in grants since it was established in 1991.
