Our school serves approximately 700 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition, we also house the South Metro Psychoeducational Program and special needs pre-kindergarten inclusion class.

    School Song:

    Learn. Know. Give. Grow.
    We can learn if we want to;
    We can make all our dreams come true.
    We can have a bright future!
    We can choose what we want to do.

    Learn. Know. Give. Grow.

    We could choose just to sit there
    And ignore what our teachers say,
    but LIONS' PRIDE is our power!
    Respect ourselves and we're on our way!

    Learn. Know. Give. Grow.

    When we come to school,
    ev'ry day is a brand new day.
    Follow rules and stay cool;
    learn from what our teachers say, what they say

    At Hamilton Holmes, at Hamilton Holmes:
    We learn the things that we need to know!
    At Hamilton Holmes, at Hamilton Holmes:
    Our teachers give what we need to grow!

    We can learn if we want to (it's our choice);
    We can make all our dreams come true (ROAR!).
    We can have a bright future (it's our choice)!
    We can choose what we want to do.

    Learn. Know. Give. Grow.

    ROOAAAAARRRRR!
