School Board appoints Newcomer as high school principal

The Hamilton School Board appointed Rebecca Newcomer Hamilton High School principal at its May 7 meeting. Newcomer, who has been a high school administrator in the Waukesha School District for the past seven years, will begin her new post effective July 1. She replaces Candis Mongan, Hamilton principal since 2006 who will become principal at Oak Creek High School.

Newcomer has spent her 21-year career in the Waukesha School District, the first 13 years as an English teacher at South High School and then as an instructional coach for two years before moving into administration. She was an assistant principal for nearly two years, then principal for five years at North High School and is currently South High School principal.

Newcomer earned her bachelor’s degree in English literature in 1997 from Loras College in Dubuque and two master’s degrees – one in education in 2005 from Carroll College and the other in school administration in 2011 from Marian University.

“Rebecca Newcomer is a talented school leader who has proven skills to support a collaborative high school environment for students, staff and families,” Superintendent Paul Mielke, Ph.D., said.

“She is an energetic, knowledgeable professional known for building relationships and establishing a positive, student-centered culture,” Mielke said. “We are fortunate to have a person of Ms. Newcomer’s caliber join our team at Hamilton to carry on a tradition of high expectations and achievement in a caring, supportive environment.”

Hamilton named to ninth AP Honor Roll

Hamilton School District is one of just 373 districts across the U.S. and Canada named to the ninth annual Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll by the College Board. Districts on the list are honored for expanding access to AP course work while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.

Inclusion in the AP Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data from 2016 to 2018. Through 38 college-level courses, each culminating in a rigorous exam, AP provides academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both at more than 4,000 four-year colleges and universities.
