What is a fundamental school?
Tucker-Capps Elementary Fundamental School serves students in grades K-5. The fundamental schools follow the same curriculum as the other Hampton City Schools. Parents sign a fundamental school contract upon registration. Students are accepted by application on a first-come, first-served space-available basis. Siblings of enrolled students are accepted into the school through fifth grade. Registrations are accepted throughout the year. Applications for the kindergarten waiting list are accepted beginning August 1 of the year the child turns 4. Students must be 5 by September 30 to attend kindergarten. No transportation is provided for students enrolled at Tucker-Capps. We have received numerous awards for outstanding achievement and offer opportunities such as a STEM lab, clubs and student participation.
