Andrew Hamilton School’s philosophy aims to provide each child in Hamilton with the knowledge and confidence necessary to excel in any chosen field. Hamilton School will prepare, ensure, and empower all students to become life learners and productive members of society. We will attract highly qualified teachers to teach at the proficiency and advanced levels. Hamilton School will accomplish this by creating an environment that is conducive to learning, engaging its students, providing every opportunity to learn, addressing all learning styles, employing best practices and providing all the materials needed to support instruction. Hamilton will enhance students’ knowledge academically and socially while increasing their awareness of personal responsibility, as they endure the challenges related to academia and their futures.
