The priority goals for Hamilton Elementary are student growth and development and closing the achievement gap so that all students achieve their full educational potential. In addition, we strive to develop student competencies identified in the "Portrait of a CFISD Graduate" which are: an effective communicator, competent problem-solver, self-directed learner, responsible citizen, and quality producer. We focus on providing a safe, learning environment for our students and one in which our parents feel welcomed and involved.
1063 students as of September 17, 2018.
Hamilton is named after Fred and Louise Hamilton who together have 52 years of classroom teaching service in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Fred was the science department chairman at Cy-Fair High School, and Louise was the social studies department chairwoman at Cy-Creek High School, Arnold, and Bleyl Middle Schools.
The Hamilton Elementary PTO is made up of resourceful and productive parents, teachers, and community members. We have a very active group of approximately 460 volunteers. The organization meets monthly and provides the school with cultural arts activities and field trips, organizes volunteers, sponsors various student events, provides classroom tutoring and conducts fund-raisers, which have provided technology, landscaping, books, and playground equipment. For more information, please contact the school.

Hamilton has a strong parent volunteer program for which we are very proud. Our volunteers are seen helping in science enrichment classes; tutoring students; preparing materials for teachers; mentoring at-risk students; organizing homeroom parties, field trips, and field day events; helping with Junior Achievement lessons; assisting in the computer lab, clinic, and library; and many other worthwhile activities. Volunteer parents are very important at Hamilton, and their involvement is both welcomed and appreciated!
