Welcome to the Hampton Township School District and the 2015-2016 School Year!
Hampton Township School District is known for its excellent academic programs. The District consistently has been ranked among the best school districts in the state and nation, and
has received recognition from outlets such as U.S. News and World Report and the Pittsburgh Business Times.
Within the last year, Hampton also has been featured in the Harrisburg Patriot News, which placed the spotlight on Hampton High School as one of the top-three performing schools in Pennsylvania in both math and science. The Patriot News’ coverage attracted the attention of Edutopia – an arm of the George Lucas Educational Foundation – which shares evidence-based K-12 learning strategies designed to empower schools across the nation to succeed. Film crews for the organization spent a week at Hampton High School last spring to catch Hampton students and faculty in action for its Schools That Work web series. The videos have brought international recognition to Hampton, and are available at www.edutopia.org/school/hampton-high-school.
Hampton also was named as one of the “Best School Districts For Your Buck” by Nerdwallet. HTSD also received recognition from the Pittsburgh Business Times in its annual ranking of Pennsylvania school districts. The annual Honor Roll ranks the 103 school districts in the region based on three years of state standardized test scores. Regionally, it earned the number
two spot out of 103 schools – moving ahead one place from last year’s ranking and, for the first time ever, passing over both Upper St. Clair and Mt. Lebanon school districts. The
publication also ranked Hampton at number 4 statewide out of 493 schools included in the study.
We are excited to continue our Tradition of Excellence as we move forward into the 2015-2016 School Year. Best wishes to everyone for a challenging and productive year!
