Hammond is an excellent school that will exceed all your expectations. While it provides an academic environment that is challenging, progressive, and innovative, it does so in a setting that is very warm, supportive, and family oriented. In one location, your child has limitless opportunities to receive an amazing education, excel in sports, government, and the arts, travel abroad to spectacular countries, and make long lasting friendships. The dynamics between students and faculty is very positive, which is central to fostering good communication, confidence, and a continued desire to learn for the future college years. Hammond creates leaders!

As a current new family to Hammond (kindergarten), we are absolutely blown away. The power of positivity at this school is EVERYTHING. As a mother, there’s never a day when I feel like I’m a bother with new questions and learning the ‘lay of the land’ so to speak. Upon enrollment, we were constantly told how special Hammond was. Special is an understatement! You just have to see for yourself. It’s an amazing little place that has brought our family so much joy so far. 🤗
My family has only been a part of the Hammond community for three years, but in that short time have come to enjoy every part of what Hammond has to offer. My children not only love the teachers but have excelled in their educational growth. The teachers are by far the best I have seen in their ability to connect with their students and drive the learning process. My oldest is reading at, what is considered by public school standards, three years over his grade level. I would recommend Hammond to any parents concerned with the long term educational success of their children.
