It’s been a very exciting start to the school year for Hamilton County Schools! Student achievement data for the 2018-2019 school year showed historic academic progress for our district. Hamilton County Schools earned Level 5 - the highest level of academic growth measured by the state - in every content area. The district also had a record-breaking number of schools earn a Level 5 and achieve Reward status. In two years, Hamilton County Schools moved from #130 to #2 in the state for student gains, making us THE fastest-improving school district in the state of Tennessee.

This growth is evidence that what our educators are doing is working, and it’s time to celebrate them!

We declared September “Celebrate Excellence Month” for Hamilton County Schools teachers and staff! Throughout the month, local businesses and community organizations generously offered discounts, special experiences, giveaways, and more for teachers and staff to celebrate their incredible accomplishments over the last school year.

Thank you to our community partners for offering our staff these great rewards and continuing to be a committed partner in education.
