The Hamilton City Schools believes in a well-rounded education for all students. This includes providing students with a comprehensive Fine Arts program. Students in Hamilton Elementary Schools receive 40 minutes of art instruction each week along with two thirty minute music classes each week. In the 5th grade students can choose between Band, Orchestra or General Music/Chorus classes. At the secondary schools students can continue in Band, Orchestra or Chorus. They also have the ability to take a variety of Art classes.
Hamilton also offers a number of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular musical opportunities for students.
