Welcome to the new website of Hampton School! We hope this site provides information and resources that are helpful to you as a family or student of Hampton or as someone looking to learn more about this amazing school. Hampton is a vibrant community nestled along the beautiful Mississippi River in Hampton, Illinois.
Hampton School provides a rigorous, comprehensive education for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our staff is deeply committed to student success and is second to none. We have highly trained teachers who ensure our students leave our school ready to be leaders in our community, our region, and beyond. We ensure all of our students meet or exceed high academic standards as well as demonstrate a high level of caring, empathy, and respect for others. Our parents and guardians are essential partners in our work. We also have a strong relationship with our neighbors and the Village of Hampton as a whole. We all work together to create a community for our students that not only leads to excellence in education, but is also engaging and fun. We believe education should be a joyful endeavor.
Come for a visit! We look forward to seeing you. Go Hawks!
I'm honored to be the superintendent of Hampton School District 29. Each day I'm energized by the students of Hampton. I love seeing the smiles on the faces of students at work and at play. We are all made to learn and explore. I believe it is my job to create an environment in which all students and staff feel safe taking risks, asking questions, and reaching beyond what they think is possible to reach their greatest potential. I try to model this as a building leader whether it be by exploring new ideas, asking questions, or celebrating successes by holding impromptu dance parties!
