Principal's Message

"At Hampstead School, we believe in greatness. We believe in our students' potential to be great!" -- Mr. Lee

Welcome to Hampstead School!

Every day, our team of caring and committed faculty and staff welcome your children and work hard to provide them with a compassionate and supportive learning community in which they are given the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop into knowledgeable and compassionate young people. We also strive to help every student reach their full potential, but the reality is that one cannot be certain what children can do until we challenge them to be their best. At Hampstead, students will be challenged to work hard, to learn from failure, and to adopt a mindset that on-going effort is the key ingredient to success in school and in life. To achieve these goals, we are required to build meaningful relationships. Education is all about relationships, and at Hampstead, you will find a community of adults who are excited to build those meaningful relationships with you and your children.

The 2018-2019 school year marks Hampstead School’s 94th year of providing an educational experience to young children. The school, programs, and people have changed and evolved over this time, but we work to preserve the best from the past while meeting the demands of the present so that our students can work to create their future.

Please take the time to peruse our website, which contains information about our programs, in particular, our effective Success for All literacy program, unique among English Montreal School Board schools. I also encourage you to keep up-to-date with school news and events by liking us on our new Facebook page or by following us on Twitter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
