Hamilton Education Program

Summerville High School has been selected to include eligible students in a program that integrates Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Era into classrooms studies, and then see the smash Broadway musical Hamilton in San Francisco. In order to keep costs down, parents and the community are invited to help sponsor this program. The primary need and expense is transportation. Please contact to contribute funding for a charter bus to transport students to the show, or sponsor students’ tickets.

Campus Safety

In an effort to improve student safety on campus, the area in front of the library and the road running through campus will be closed to cars before school, during the school day, and until after the busses have departed in the afternoon.  Please plan accordingly to avoid these areas at these times and help us keep our students safe!
