HAMILTON TOWNSHIP PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“A QUALITY EDUCATION FOR EVERY STUDENT"

While the Hamilton Township School District is a separate government from the Township government, Hamilton’s public schools help make our community “America’s Favorite Hometown.”

As the 8th largest school district in the state of New Jersey, providing over 13,000 students with an opportunity to grow academically, socially and emotionally, the Hamilton Township School District is rooted in values and growing in knowledge. As their mission statement outlines, Hamilton Township Public Schools desire to provide a “QUALITY EDUCATION FOR EVERY STUDENT.”
