Welcome to the Hampton Township School District and the 2014-2015 School Year!
Things just keep getting better in the Hampton Township School District. Our students and staff continue to excel, academically, athletically, and in the fine and performing arts, continuing the Tradition of Excellence for which Hampton has become known.
Hampton has continually been named by Newsweek as a top-ranked high school in the nation. Newsweek has been ranking America’s top public high schools for over a decade. The criteria for being named to the list were significantly changed in 2011-2012, making it harder than ever to be called one of America’s top high schools.
In addition to Newsweek’s ranking, Hampton Township School District once again was ranked highly by the Pittsburgh Business Times in its (PBT) 2014 Guide to Western Pennsylvania’s School Districts.
Hampton also received new recognition this year from NerdWallet – an online resource. It ranked Allison Park as one of the 10 best places to live in Pennsylvania. According to analyzers at NerdWallet, the quality of the school districts within the communities they studied was the most important factor when compiling their list.
Both the Middle School and the High School received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Academics. In order to receive the designation, a school must be able to demonstrate that it ensures every student receives an exceptional educational experience designed to prepare them for success in the workforce, the military or post-secondary education.
We are very excited about the continued opportunities that will be available for the students of the Hampton Township School District and we hope that everyone will enjoy a challenging and productive school year.
Have a wonderful school year!
John C. Hoover, Ph. D.
