Welcome to School Year 2019 - 2020 here at Hamilton Southeastern Schools

Whether you are a new student to HSE or returning to a new school year, welcome!  We are committed to working with you to lay a path for success.  We are a caring, student-centered group of people who believe that through dedication and effort, anyone can rise to levels that will enable them to create a better world for themselves.

I’m often asked if summer is an “easy” time in the school business.  I reply that it is a quieter time, but a very busy time for us.

We hire new teachers, perform non routine maintenance tasks, assume building renovation or construction projects, review the past year’s progress, and establish goals for the upcoming school year.

To better serve today and tomorrow’s students, we have prioritized three goals for this year:

  • To reduce the academic achievement gap between our highest and lowest performing students;
  • To improve the culture of our buildings for students, staff, and parents; and
  • To review and refine district operations to maximize our use of facilities. 

For those students attending New Britton Elementary, Southeastern Elementary, Fishers Junior High, HSE High School, and Brooks School Elementary; the renovation and construction projects are in various stages of completion.  There still may be a bit of dust on the first few days, but the end result is an improved facility for your benefit.

The beginning of any school year is a time of optimism and high expectations.  For many of our students, especially our kindergartners, it is a first time to experience HSE.  To all our new students and their families, we welcome you and look forward to working with you!
