Hamilton Southeastern Junior High is one of three junior high schools in the HSE School District and is located in Fishers, IN, rated the #1 city for families in the U.S. by The Learning Channel (TLC). At HSE Junior High, the school has a world-class teaching staff made up of teachers who believe in life-long learning and who are willing to share with and learn from colleagues from the District and across the state. Setting and communicating high expectations for all students and stakeholders is a critical component of the school. Teachers model a "Can do! Will do!" attitude that permeates to students on a daily basis.
HSE Junior High has adopted the district HSE21 Best Practices Model which ensures that all students receive relevant, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences related to college and career readiness. The goal is to increase student learning opportunities in every classroom, every day to develop 21st century skills of creative and critical thinking to solve complex problems, collaborate, innovate, and become information literate. The staff implements innovative project-based opportunities that connect academics to real-life applications. The learning is enhanced through the use of 'BYOD’ (Bring Your Own Device) or in-house iPads as learning tools to bring the latest research directly to the students’ hands in the form of mobile technology labs.
The staff at Hamilton Southeastern Junior High firmly believe that while academics is the cornerstone of education, the modeling of high character is also paramount to students’ overall educational experience.
