Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Go Rangers!

As we begin a new school year at Hamilton Township High School, ensuring that all students feel supported and safe is at the forefront of our mission. Furthermore, we plan to build and expand on family partnerships, student belonging, and empowering students throughout the 22-23 school year. 


Students, I am proud to be the building principal at Hamilton Township High School, home of the Rangers!  I am excited to see the positive relationships you will develop this year as well as what you will accomplish in academics and athletics. I am asking three things of you this year:

  1. How can you move forward on your E- enlisted, employed, or enrolled?

  2. Be accountable and an active participant in your education.

  3. Get involved in the school via clubs, the band, student aide, student council, choir, athletics, etc.


From an academic perspective, our goal is to support students on their path toward graduation and also support them in getting a jumpstart on their post-graduation plans to be Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled. This includes, but is not limited to: joining the workforce, enlisting in one of the branches of our military, or attending a college or career technical school. Without question, our students have more opportunities and access to college and careers than ever before! We encourage you to stay connected with one of our school counselors and/or their second period advisory teacher as your student navigates their pathway towards high school graduation and beyond. 


In closing, for our parents/guardians, I will continue to remind you that you have the privilege of being the primary teacher in your student’s life. Please know that you are part of our school family. We need your support to help your student be successful. Please make every effort to monitor your student’s academic success through Progress Book and Google Classroom. If you ever need assistance, we strongly encourage you to reach out to us via email or phone call, as we are here to help! Thank you in advance for your trust and for being part of the Hamilton Township High School family!


Never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns (614) 491-8044 ext.1802. 




Best Regards,


Matt O’Hearn
