Campus Goals

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.

Curriculum - Elementary

  • CFISD elementary schools are comprised of students in grades K-5. Students who qualify for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities or for Pre-kindergarten are bused to sites that provide these programs.
  • Core subjects at the elementary level include reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, technology applications, health, physical education, art, music, and theatre arts.
  • Every campus faculty includes the following members: counselor(s), nurse, diagnostician, speech and language clinician, dyslexia specialists, reading specialist(s), and content-area liaisons, as well as specially trained/certified teachers in the following areas: art, music, physical education, technology applications, English as a Second Language, and gifted education.
  • The District's HORIZONS program is for academically-gifted students. In kindergarten, gifted instruction is provided in language arts and mathematics. In grades 1-5, the program addresses the four foundation areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
  • CFISD's Bilingual and ESL programs provide additional support in English language development for students who have a home language other than English and who have been identified as limited-English-proficient.
