Emilio Umeoka the Vice President of Sales for Apple Education recently brought a team to visit our District and learn from our teachers and students. Members of their team commented on the strength of the Hilliard culture. They were excited to see the passion, energy and engagement of students and staff.
Our vision is aligned with our purpose. Unlike other places, we aren’t just talking the talk. Our culture and behavior is evident in our work. To quote one of the Apple Executives, “You guys just breathe this stuff.”
Yes . . . we breathe it because it is our core. Our hearts and minds are aligned. We embrace innovation and we have a true passion for growth.

My son is a high school athlete. Our neighbor’s kids are in the band and always selling things and asking for money. What is the district’s position on mandatory fundraisers?
First of all, and I can’t be any more direct, there are no mandatory fundraisers. If you feel your child is being pressured into selling items or asking for money, please contact your school’s principal. We don’t force student participation in fundraising activities. Read More…

The Davidson Media Arts students visited SpaceJunk Media to learn about motion graphics, animation and video in a creative business setting. They were hosted by former Davidson students, Zak Tietjen and Nick Schooner. Both are animators at the media group. SpaceJunk is a full service motion graphics and live action studio comprised of a diverse crew of artists, all with a passion for bringing stories to life. They partner with a wide variety of brands and create authentic digital experiences that connect in powerful ways.
The students also visited WOSU/PBS production studios on The Ohio State University Campus. Executive Producers, directors, studio hands, and motion graphics artists discussed careers in public television and media. Our local PBS affiliate is responsible for disseminating national programming, creating local news, and In The Know, and Emmy award winning programs such as Broad and High and Columbus Neighborhoods.
