About Us

OUR REASON FOR BEING

 City Neighbors Hamilton fully embraces, supports, and works toward the realization of our ideals as stated in our charter:

 

THE CITY NEIGHBORS HAMILTON MISSION
The mission of City Neighbors Hamilton is to provide an extraordinary public school education with high academic achievement for all students. Our ultimate goal for our school is that through project-based learning, arts integration, parental involvement and community outreach, the students leave enlivened, with deep awareness of themselves, their families, and the outside community, and with the capacity to be good citizens.

 

THE CITY NEIGHBORS HAMILTON VISION

At City Neighbors Hamilton our classrooms serve as individual model communities where issues are discussed, differences in perspectives are welcomed, and children work cooperatively, rather than competitively. The City Neighbors governance model--including parents, business and community leaders, teachers, students, and the principal--reflect our commitment to cooperative governance, based on the principles of human dignity, consensus, and freedom. Our belief and experience is that when given a strong structure to support generative thinking, as well as, meaningful activities to perform, all children and adults strive for excellence. Because of this focus, City Neighbors Hamilton’s impact on the lives of students, families, and the community will be powerful, positive, and long lasting.

 CITY NEIGHBORS HAMILTON STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY

 Diversity is essential to who we are!  In this spirit, City Neighbors Hamilton embraces the diversity within our school, community, and world.

 We endeavor to create an environment that values all people of any ability, age, family structure, gender, gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

 We strive to create this environment through our curriculum, interactions, staffing, policies and procedures.

As the families, staff, and students of City Neighbors Hamilton, we accept the responsibility to help every member of our school feel safe, respected, and valued.
