Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to Hamilton Elementary Middle School’s website, where you will find information about our history of excellence, our current achievements, and our plans for continued greatness. Hamilton welcomes students of all abilities and cultural backgrounds, and we prepare them to enter the best high schools in the area and the best colleges around the country. We will not stop until we are sure that we are preparing every student to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for success in the 21st Century.
HEMS is an Arts and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Pre-K to 8th grade school located in the Hamilton neighborhood in northeast Baltimore. Much of our success is due to our strong community and parental support, and to a faculty and staff that is dedicated to academic rigor, high expectations, and the belief in the value and ability of every child to learn at high levels.
We are proud to have programs to meet the needs and interests of every child. Our Ingenuity program is one of only three Gifted and Talented middle school programs in the district. And from our award winning choir, band, and chess programs, to our elective programs including the community garden, technology/yearbook, physical fitness, french, musical theater and art, there is something for everyone at Hamilton.
We encourage you to visit our website often to witness the great things that are happening at Hamilton this school year.
Dr. Patricia Otway-Drummond,
Proud Principal, Hamilton Elementary Middle School
