Athletic

Extra-curricular programs are an integral part of student life at Hamburg School. Our primary goal is to enhance the academic, social and emotional development of our student body through offering a variety of athletic, artistic, literary, and musical activities. After school activities promote time management skills; allows for exploration of diverse interests; builds self esteem, teamwork abilities, and goal setting. The Hamburg School encourages our students to become involved.
