A Message From the Desk of
Superintendent Christopher T. Lester

2014-15 School Year Has Begun!
District parents, community members and other stakeholders,
It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Hamilton Local School District as we begin the 2014-2015 school year.

As Superintendent of this district, I am focused on seeing every student succeed in our classrooms, athletic facilities, and auditoriums while, at the same time, holding our employees to the highest professional standard.

We are a school district that takes great pride in continually displaying, through our actions, a commitment of doing whatever it takes to provide the best education to the children of this community. Our district’s reputation attracted Governor John Kasich to ceremoniously sign HB 555, and also played host to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Richard Ross’ announcement of the new School of Honor program. On top of those visits, our district was also recently named one of Central Ohio’s Top Workplaces by Columbus CEO Magazine / 10TV for 2014.

We continually evolve our methods of instruction and leadership while utilizing the momentum we have gained as a district following the implementation of preschool, all-day kindergarten, and the establishment of the Hamilton Alternative Academy, to name a few. These educational opportunities, combined with the caring and dedicated faculty and staff, assist our students in acquiring a quality, 21st century education.

Our advancements have occurred without asking our community for additional operating funds, and we take pride in knowing know our district is one of the most financially sound in Central Ohio.

On behalf of our faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Education, I hope this school year is both enjoyable and rewarding.
Go Rangers!
Christopher T. Lester
