The school is divided into four groups called "Houses". Each of the houses includes staff and students. At Hampton Oaks Elementary we have four houses that are symbolized by a hawk, a color, and a character trait. Each student when they register at Hampton Oaks Elementary School is assigned a house. Each staff member when they are hired is assigned a house. The students and staff members stay with the same house the entire time they are at Hampton Oaks Elementary School. The houses compete with each other in many different ways to earn points. Points are never taken away and are meant as a reward for the students and staff to build a sense of gamification into the school day.
