Early admission to school deadline approaches


Parents who want their children considered for early admission into a Hamilton School District 5-year-old kindergarten or first grade class next fall should apply in writing by March 1 to their elementary school principal. Application forms are available at elementary school offices.

Children who turn five on or before Sept. 1, 2023 meet normal entrance age requirements for the 2023-24 5-year-old kindergarten class; those who turn six on or before Sept. 1, 2023 are eligible to enter first grade.

Parents making an application will meet with the principal. During that time, a brief interview will take place and the application will be completed. The child should demonstrate superior intellectual development, superior language skills and advanced physical, social and emotional maturity. Parents will be contacted no later than mid-March 2023 about the next step in the process.

For more information about early admission, contact an elementary school principal or Assistant Superintendent of Special Services John Peterson (262) 246-1973 x1184.
