Current Enrollment


Welcome to our website!  My name is Travis McCollum and I am the Principal at Hamilton County Jr./Sr. High School.  As your Principal, I look forward to strengthening the relationships that I have begun building with our students, families, teachers, and staff.  I am very excited about the upcoming school year.  I am very passionate about education and making certain all students are successful. 

At Hamilton County Jr./Sr. High School, we pride ourselves in the quality education we deliver to the Junior and Senior High School students of Hamilton County.  Our students have represented this school well in academics, athletics, and other activities.  Our vocational programs are recognized as among the best in Southern Illinois.  Our modern facility provides an excellent environment for students and the community to grow and learn.  Through meaningful yet rigorous assignments in our safe learning environment, students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills needed in the 21st Century.

I encourage all parents and guardians to become involved in our school and be an active partner in your child’s education. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. 

Go Foxes!
Travis McCollum, Principal
