Welcome Letter From The Head of School

Please accept a warm and inviting welcome to Hammond. Whether you are already a member of our school community or are interested in learning more about us as a prospective student, teacher, or parent, we hope that this site will enable you to glimpse the enthusiasm and vitality that define the Hammond experience.

At Hammond, our focus is on preparing every student to succeed--and lead--in a dynamic, connected, competitive world.  We do that by surrounding each individual with exceptional facilities, renowned faculty, broad opportunities in athletics and the arts, and a supportive "Hammond family" atmosphere.  In every corner of our spacious campus and beyond--from our classrooms to our athletic fields to our the world beyond our gates, you will find success stories of students and adults learning and growing from one another. 
While we encourage you to explore the breadth and depth of our programs on this website, there is simply no substitute for witnessing Hammond in action.  Please accept this invitation to experience the Hammond community and meet our remarkable students and teachers and observe our commitment to fostering excellence in our students.  Come see for yourself what makes our community so special!

It's a special place.  We'd be honored to have you join us.
