Students are welcomed this year (2019-20) to a new neighborhood middle school on the historic Stratford Junior High site. There are three major areas of focus for staff of the Dorothy Hamm Middle School this year: first, designing and implementing the instructional program; second, building the Dorothy Hamm community; and third, overseeing construction of the new addition and renovation of the original building.

So that students can be and can become their best, the learning environment and instructional program at Dorothy Hamm Middle School is safe, engaging and challenging. Community is the heart and soul of a school building. Students have had the opportunity to select the school colors and mascot, form the student council association, and gather student input for what this amazing school should be like.
