    HES picStudent Outcomes
    Hampton Elementary prides itself on using high-quality instructional practices that prioritize students’ needs. Our school consistently monitors student learning to ensure each student is receiving appropriate, individualized instruction. HES aligns with the district's core belief that students can learn at or above grade level and will have an equal opportunity to do so. The school motto is "Putting the Child First”, and HES commits to teacher excellence, which results in student excellence. Our mission is to foster an equitable, exceptional, and empathetic learning environment for all of our students.Teachers at HES understand the significance of early exposure to literacy and phonological awareness. Teachers use a variety of reading strategies to engage students in the love of reading, to ensure students become proficient readers. Each year, students' reading proficiency levels have increased because of evidence-based resources that meet the needs of all learners.                                                                                                             

    HES began intensively using MAP(Measurement of Academic Progress) to guide instruction based on student needs five years ago. This assessment is used to gather information on each child’s strengths or areas for growth in Reading and Math, which teachers then use to guide instruction. MAP provides teachers with a specific academic roadmap for each student to aid them in how to differentiate instruction. Also, MAP provides parents with important educational information about their child, which helps build communication between school and home. Using the MAP assessment has proven to be an essential tool in teaching for student learning. In the 2018-2019 school year, students met and exceeded their peers' growth norms in each grade level across the country. Every grade level 1st-5th has met or exceeded MAP growth levels for the past three years; a direct reflection of deliberate instruction based on data analysis.


     
    HES picStudent Opportunities
    Hampton Elementary has earned the distinction of being the only Nationally Certified STEAM Program in Henry County Schools. STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Hampton Elementary School provides equitable opportunities for all Pre-K through 5th grade students to engage in high-quality STEAM learning. All students participate in STEAM-focused integrated lessons and engage in project-based learning opportunities each year. HES was recognized nationally for its dedication to equity and providing authentic learning opportunities for students.
     
    Through engagement with business, government and community partners, our students are exposed to authentic learning opportunities in the local community and beyond. Students are given opportunities to directly engage with STEAM experts and STEAM-related careers as they learn. Hampton Elementary students use what they have learned to impact the community and state. Hampton Elementary received national accreditation from Cognia, who praised their innovative approach to learning. Cognia representative, Travis Nesmith said, “Hampton Elementary has created a program of distinction, worthy of recognition within the district, state, and beyond. It is evident that the school’s staff has been persistent in its pursuit of excellence in STEAM education. Cognia is proud of its partnership with this exemplary institution.”


     
    HES picClimate and Culture
    HES faculty and staff prioritize meeting the needs of each learner, and to do so, HES faculty engage in meaningful, impactful equity training to grow together to meet the needs of every student. Teachers participate in discussions, activities, and learning modules led by keynote speaker Stephen Peters. Peters believes that “to become future-ready now, educators need leadership and clarity. These are tough times, but not tougher than those who humbly fight for our children with a warrior spirit.” Teachers learn and grow through brave conversations and reflections with trust and focus on students at the center. What an incredible and engaging experience for the educators of present and future scholars!

    Hampton Elementary focuses on the whole child and ensuring each child and family has what they need to support their learner. As such, HES institutes a CARES Team approach to provide an easily accessible platform to be able to share concerns and provide support based on identified needs and challenges for students, families, and staff. The team consists of administrators, the school counselor, student support facilitator, clinic aide, school social worker, personalized learning lead, instructional lead, parent involvement para, and school secretary. Team members are able to provide recent, relevant information regarding shared concerns and have the ability to immediately identify the next steps to provide support.

    In its focus on the whole child, HES values the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) of all students. Each day, children receive a lesson that focuses on a specific age-appropriate skill, which will help them learn how to interact with others as a member of the community. Students learn about empathy, responsibility, respect, and how to regulate strong feelings. The school uses a curriculum called Second Step, which has fun activities to engage young scholars in practicing their SEL skills. The curriculum immerses students in this integral learning through music, dance, storytelling, and acting.
     



    HES pic Extracurriculars
    Hampton Elementary School students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs and after-school groups to extend their learning beyond classroom instruction.

    Hampton Elementary School’s Girls Who Code Club is a group of 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade girls who meet each week to learn about computer coding. Through this club, HES girls have an integrated model of STEM learning opportunities that deepen their understanding of various STEM disciplines. Each girl chooses a way they want the world to be better and creates a coding project to raise awareness. Hampton’s Hornet STEAM Robotics Club participated in the Georgia FIRST Lego League Regional Tournament. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) introduces young people ages 9 to 14 to the fun and excitement of science, technology, and engineering concepts while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills. While the program involves LEGO robotics, FLL goes far beyond robotics, with teams examining real-life problems and developing innovative solutions to solve them. Students won the Griffin-Spalding Regional Core Values Award (2019-20).
     
    Hampton Elementary also offers an Art Club at HES. Students engage in a variety of self-guided and community projects. Students participate in a variety of art competitions and exhibitions such as displays at Hampton City Hall.

    Opportunities for music enrichment are also provided in Piano Club and Honor Chorus. These students have been invited to sing at holiday festivities at Hampton City Hall over the years.

  •  Student Outcomes

     

     
    Hampton Elementary School’s student outcomes information can be found on this dashboard. This information includes:

    • Georgia Student Health Survey Responses
    • Literacy Proficiency Rates

    The Georgia Student Health Survey is given to all k-12 students in Georgia in the spring of each school year. It is composed of a variety of questions that help our district better understand the student experience in our schools. The literacy information is calculated as the percentage of students reading on or above grade level determined by scores on the Milestones End-of-Grade assessments for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in English Language Arts. Each of these data components can be viewed for the previous three years. For more information about these measurements, please access the Hampton Elementary School website.
