Hamilton High Administration



Monekea M. Smith, Ed. S.

As I begin my third school year as Principal of Hamilton High School, I continue to be energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is

our goal at Hamilton High School that all graduates are college or career ready.

     On behalf of the faculty and staff at Hamilton High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your student to the 2017-2018 school year.  My past experience has shown me that it takes a team to help all students reach their maximum potential.  I will work collaboratively with the staff at Hamilton High School to provide an academic program where all students can be successful.  We will make every effort so that all students will graduate, become successful members of society and are able to compete in an increasingly complex world in which they will work and live.  The caring and dedicated faculty and staff at Hamilton High School will continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their dreams. Our staff goals this year include developing higher levels of thinking and learning and higher levels of engagement opportunities.

      It is my hope that all students get involved in our school through athletics, music, student leadership, community volunteerism and school activities and clubs. Working together, we can ensure that the students of Hamilton High School continue to achieve their highest potential in the classroom, gym, or on the field.  Your involvement, partnership and support are greatly appreciated during the school year as we work to build and maintain our programs.

     I sincerely hope you will take time to look through our web pages and learn about the opportunities available to all students who are members of our Wildcat Family.  We believe our students' years as Hamilton High School are their opportunity to become scholars and champions!  I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year and look forward to working with the staff and community to continue the Hamilton High School tradition of academic excellence!

Yours in Education,

Monekea M. Smith
