Hamilton Home School Partnership Overview
The Hamilton Home School Partnership offers many classes for children from grades K-12. The classes are online and project Based Learnign classes taught by certified teachers. While all classes may be taken completley online, many students enjoy the comradie and additional experiences providedd by the optional classes held at the Hamilton Middle School and Hamilton High School during our Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday home school sessions, primarily between 11:15-4:30.
This program helps individualize learning for home school and blended instruction students living in the Ottawa Area ISD (Intermediate School District) or a contiguous ISD. (Kent County ISD, Allegan Area Educational Service Agency, or Muskegon Area ISD) You can look up your ISD by following this link. If you live in Allegan County, and are not in one of the included ISD's you may still participate but will be limited to 3 classes.
Students enroll part-time with Hamilton Community Schools and are able to take elective online classes, college dual enrollment courses, and/or project based learning classes. There are many opportunities, and the program continues to grow with the ideas and needs of our families.
As part-time Hamilton students, those enrolled will have course work partially or wholly paid for by State of Michigan education dollars. As taxpayers, you deserve it. As educators, we want to provide these learning opportunities for the children of our area, whether we see them all day everyday or only for a few hours each week.
