Welcome to Rose Hamilton Elementary School.  Our school is composed of approximately 425 students in Pre-School through Grade 2; and a staff of approximately 50, including teachers, paraprofessionals, kitchen staff, office staff and custodians.   

During the school day, students receive their academic instruction in self-contained classrooms, while receiving instruction in the related arts classes (art, music, physical education, library instruction and computer lab) from licensed instructors throughout the building.

"Educated for Success"

The Rose Hamilton Literacy Program has adopted the Indiana Reading Framework.  This framework focuses on reading goals, large and small group instruction and assessment. Rose Hamilton utilizes Response to Instruction (RTI) groups (daily small group instruction) to help students in need of more intensive instruction.


Our kindergarten uses the Early Intervention for School Success (EISS), a nationally validated program to screen our kindergarten students.  The screening instruments identify basic academic skills in five modalities.  These modalities are motor coordination gross, motor coordination fine, developmental skills auditory, language and visual.  After screening, areas that are found to be weak are worked on by our EISS trained paraprofessionals under the guidance of our teachers.

In our first grade, Rose Hamilton has two certified Reading Recovery teachers who work one-on-one each day with identified first grade students who need additional help with reading and writing instruction.  Reading Recovery is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-to-one tutoring for low-achieving first graders.

The mission statement, at Rose Hamilton, clearly indicates the philosophy of the staff:

                       "Parents, school, and community working together to
                                            educate children for the future."
