Students Unite to Fight Cancer during Volley for the Cure

Hamilton Township, founded in 1807, always has been characterized by an acceptance that the hard work must be done. From the tireless, determined farmers who shaped the land to the Lockbourne Ohio-Erie Canal lock tenders on twenty-four hours call, ensuring safe passage of people and product, to our working-class residents who go to two or three second and third shift jobs to provide for their children, Hamilton Township is the embodiment of the working class. Likewise, Hamilton Township High School's students and staff embody the relentless pursuit of success gained only through hard work. A dozen years ago we were at or near the bottom of any Central Ohio school ranking; we had our work cut out for us. Today, our decisions that affect students are driven by the data we collect from daily and short-cycle formative assessments and final summative assessments. We use state and national standards to guide collaboration and to ensure the highest expectations of teachers and students. We examine what worked with students and, together, determine what to do next, meeting with the district's teachers at all levels to ensure the learning continuum. We are dedicated to helping students be creative and innovative while providing them the means to communicate and collaborate effectively as they think critically and solve problems. Helping our students be outstanding 21st century citizens is the goal of our commitment toward improving achievement through total accountability and high expectations. Earning a remarkable number of awards, our hard work clearly has paid off.
