Welcome to Hamilton Middle School
I am proud to be serving HMS and our surrounding community as principal. This will be my seventh year at Hamilton Middle School. Previously I taught special education for ten years and served as an administrator in the Kelloggsville Public Schools as an assistant and head principal at the middle and high schools. I live on the south side of Holland with my wife, Meg, and our three kids, Sam, Nora, and Paige who also attend Hamilton Schools. Hamilton is a great place to be and I enjoy being a part of your community!
Rick Frens, Hamilton Middle School Principal
