Hamilton Local is a public school district that provides a forward-thinking, future-focused, 21st century learning environment to properly educate each of the nearly 3,100 children (Pre-K – 12th grade) residing in the Villages of Obetz & Lockbourne, along with Hamilton Township, Reese, Shadeville and some Columbus locations, all of which are located in southern Franklin County, Ohio. We are focused on improving achievement through total accountability and high expectations. By having this focus, and buy-in from all of our stakeholders, we have become one of Ohio's most improved and successful school districts. Our district has achieved this academic growth while staying fiscally responsible with our communities tax dollars as our last approved operating levy was passed in May 1993. We are very proud of our employees, and the educational excellence they provide the children and citizens of our school district.
