MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL DE LA TORRE

Hamilton Community

As we wrap up 2020 and the fall semester of this school year, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the support from the Hamilton Community. While 2020 has been one for the books, I have witnessed so many acts of kindness from students, families, community, and staff. High schools truly are a measure of the broader community that it serves. The Hamilton community continues to shine as a place where young people achieve great success and prepare themselves for future accomplishments. During this semester, Hamilton students continued the proud tradition of success with so many top performances at the state and national level. All of this is not possible with collaborative efforts of so many stakeholders. I hope students enjoy the winter break and are ready to return for the fresh start of the second semester.
