Family and Community Partnership: In Hamilton County Schools we believe the key to tomorrows prosperity is in the successful development of each individual child that comes to our schools. The foundation of the child's future starts at home and is nurtured by the community involvement and educationally rich supportive environment. Our mission is to build a broad-based family support that involves the community at large, business and educational resources. Our goal is to invest these resources in the most valuable capital of the future - our students. Hamilton County Schools reflect the diversity that we experience in the Chattanooga Area - 112 different languages are spoken in our homes, parents and students come from 100 different countries. We embrace and welcome the diversity and strive to serve all the parents and communities.
