What is STREAM School?

STREAM School at Hamilton Middle School is an important collaboration between Hamilton Community Schools,  the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland and other partners in the greater Holland area.

The program is designed to provide meaningful access to valuable resources in West Michigan such as Lake Michigan, dunes, wetlands, and the Outdoor Discovery Center property. The experiences are not field trips, rather an extension of the classroom and hopefully unforgettable moments that keep students engaged in the area.
