Hamilton Elementary School strives to surpass the expectations of a typical urban elementary school by integrating community involvement with its academic program. Parent participation is an integral part of the curriculum.
The campus becomes a respected community symbol for hope and opportunity. School facilities are double-used by the school and by community organizations. The new two story classroom structure serves both as an important community icon and as a physical link between the strayed existing buildings.
The campus entry is redefined, removed from the windowless 1970's structure, and relocated to the geometric crossroad of the campus. A new outdoor lunch court structure becomes an amphitheater for both school and community functions. Existing buildings were remodeled to include accessibility compliance and fire alarm, data and security system upgrades.
