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.

And here’s why . . .
Red has been shown to increase blood pressure and stimulate the adrenal glands. The stimulation of the adrenal glands helps us become strong and increases our stamina. Red has proven to be a color of vitality and ambition. Sometimes red can be useful in dispelling negative thoughts.
Yellow has proven to stimulate the brain. This stimulation can make you more alert and decisive. This color makes muscles more energetic. Yellow is a happy and uplifting color. It can also be associated with intellectual thinking: discernment, memory, clear thinking, decision-making and good judgment. Yellow builds self-confidence and encourages optimism.
Orange has shown to have only positive effects on your emotional state. This color relieves feelings of self-pity, lack of self-worth and unwillingness to forgive. Orange opens your emotions and is a terrific antidepressant.
Pink induces feelings of calm, protection, warmth and nurture. This color can be used to lessen irritation and aggression as it is connected with feelings of love. Pink helps muscles relax.
Light Blue proves to lower blood pressure. Blue also has a very cooling and soothing affect, often making us calmer. Blue inspires mental control, clarity, and creativity.
