Hamilton seeks to instill in our students the skills necessary to communicate and work effectively in a digital world.

We want our students to understand the power and limits of computing processes; the potential uses of data, analytics, and computer modeling; the use of digital media to communicate and collaborate; the privacy, security, and other ethical and societal implications of living in an online world; and the basics of information fluency, including how to find, organize, evaluate, and interpret online information.
