Elementary Students Lead with Learning Fifth and sixth grade students at Hillman Elementary spent time learning last school year by being leaders in our scohol. Many advisory clubs were organized such as the School Store Leaders pictured here along with Mr. Rundell's news crew, a principal advisory committee, and the safety squat, just to name a few.
New Middle School Concept A new Middle School program has been created for grades 6-8 at the High School campus. This allows for consistency between grade levels, support for the transition to Middle School, and will provide a consistent team for parent interactions to be supported.
Successful Seniors Preparing for the Future In 2016, we had an increase in graduation rates, taking us to 90%, with 80% of graduating seniors having committed to a four-year university, community college or military service. We are continually striving to better prepare our students for a bright future.
