About Kauri Sue Hamilton School

Kauri Sue Hamilton School - Reach for the Stars!The Kauri Sue Hamilton School is a center-based school for students with significant disabilities. The land was donated by Cletus and Sharon Hamilton in gratitude for the special education services Jordan School District provided for their daughter Kauri Sue who lives nearby in Spanish Fork, UT.

Students from age 5-22 receive a comprehensive educational program and benefit from specially trained staff and services including music, speech, occupational and physical therapy and adaptive P.E.  The facility includes a therapy swimming pool, two playgrounds, two multi-sensory environment rooms, therapy treatment rooms, a health clinic, 18 classrooms and a cafeteria and gymnasium.

Several district services are housed within the beautiful two-story structure: the Placement Office for Special Education; Health Services / Medicaid; the Audiology Team; and the Jordan Child Development Center which includes both our infant-toddler program and the preschool program.

Student Achievement

PACE is an acronym given to Utah’s 2013 ten-year education and economic development plan. The plan includes four main components: Prepare young learners, Access for all students, Complete certificates and degrees, and Economic success (PACE). PACE Accountability Reports provide information regarding a school’s progress towards achieving components of the Governor’s education and economic development plan.

In lower and middle grades, PACE Accountability Reports display information regarding kindergarten readiness and SAGE assessment results for grades 3, 6, and 8. At the high school level, SAGE reports include graduation rates, ACT results, and college credit earned concurrent enrollment, advanced placement (AP), career and technical education (CTE), and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs.
