Our State Accountability Reports

Hamilton's Report Card

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC).  The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school.  Directions to Hamilton's SARC are attached.

High School Readiness Index:  Are You Ready for High School?

Research shows the following factors strongly affect your chance of graduating from high school.  How well do they describe YOU?


 
  •   My Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.5 or above.
  •   My attendance is at least 96% or better.
  •   I have no D's or F's in English/Language Arts.
  •   I have no D's or F's in math.
  •   I have not been suspended.

Q:  Why does attendance matter?
Less than half of middle school students who were absent 8 or more days in a school year ended up graduating high school.

Q:  Why does GPA matter?
Only 4% of those students who left middle school with less than a 2.0 GPA graduated high school.

Q:  Why do ELA/Math grades matter?
Only three percent of students who had D's / F's in middle school ELA and math graduated from high school.

Conclusion:  Your effort in Middle School sets the path for high school.  Do the right thing now!

    REDcards for Hamilton

    If you have a Target debit or credit card, did you know that Target will donate a portion of your purchases to Hamilton? 

     

    Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 4.28.09 PM.png

    Yes!  Our school has already received over $2,500 through this program.

    Taking responsibility for a debit or credit card is serious business!  Be sure to investigate the pros and cons of any card before you apply for one.  As an example, for the Target cards, you might look here, here, here, and here

    Finally, if you already have a Target card, or have decided that the benefits of having one outweigh the risks, click here or on the image above to apply.  And don't forget to enter Code 32321 to designate Hamilton MS as the beneficiary of your contributions!
