18 Hamilton County Schools Earn Reward School Designation

  • Thursday, February 22, 2024

Hamilton County Schools announced 18 schools have been honored as Reward Schools for the 2022-2023 school year. The Reward School status is awarded for excellence and progress across all indicators from the previous school year.

“As we said earlier this year, our schools are excellent,” said HCS Superintendent Dr. Justin Robertson. “This achievement is just another example of the success and quality of our schools. I am extremely proud of our teachers, students, families, and staff for their hard work to ensure success at all levels.”

"Reward Schools are one measure that can tell us our students and schools are succeeding,” said HCS Deputy Superintendent Dr. Sonia Stewart. “Our students in Hamilton County are growing and learning. We are committed to continuing this standard of excellence as we work to graduate students who are life-ready and model our Portrait of a Graduate.”

The Reward School designation is a testament to the achievements of teachers, students, staff, and administrators who have worked consistently to create a supportive environment for learning and growth. Their commitment to providing high-quality education and fostering a culture of continuous improvement reflects the district’s value that all students deserve care and attention while receiving a high-quality education, said officials.

“I remain proud and impressed by the work of our schools in Hamilton County,” said Joe Smith, Hamilton County Board of Education chairman. “We know our students are capable of great things. The School Board will continue to support our students, families, and staff in this work, and we look forward to seeing our students continue to thrive.”
