If you have changed your primary contact number since initial registration or if you have not received any calls from the district this year, you should update your telephone number in order to receive automated notifications. Please contact your child's school office to update your contact information.
The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, Inc., recognized Lake Hamilton Middle School as a 2011 NCEA Higher Performing School. Lake Hamilton Middle School received Higher Performing (HP) recognition in the following areas: Higher performing in Math based on the number of students that have advanced scores in Math on the statewide Benchmark exams. The Higher Performing Schools (formerly known as Just for the Kids Schools) are identified by two measures: consistent improvement in student achievement from previous years (growth) and/or absolute student achievement using the schools advanced performance results on the spring 2011 Arkansas ABE (Augmented Benchmark Examinations). NCEA's higher performing methodology controls for school and student demographics to allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of school achievement and to demonstrate that with the commitment of educators, all schools can have success no matter the zip code. NCEA provided award certificates to each Higher Performing School and the district.
