Open Enrollment 2021-2022/2022-2023 Information

The South Hamilton Community School District staff, students, and stakeholders understand that selecting a school district for your child to attend is impacted by many factors. The most apparent being the variety of educational prospects and the quality of instruction he or she will receive while attending a given school. We believe South Hamilton is a “SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT OFFIERS BIG OPPORTUNITIES” within and outside the classrooms.

We understand the process of Open Enrollment should be one in which all families considering South Hamilton schools feel welcomed, valued, and receive the information they need to make the right decision for their children. By considering and selecting the South Hamilton schools, you are providing “US” the chance to help bring learning to life for your child. This is a gift we hold dear, as we realize the significance of having a child feel connected and inspired throughout her or his education.

We thank you for your consideration and encourage you to learn more about the South Hamilton Community Schools by looking over the district’s website, scheduling a visit to tour our facilities, and by reviewing the following information pertaining to Open Enrollment in the South Hamilton School District.
