Students are playing a prominent role in shaping our vision both here at the ILC and throughout the district. Often, districts rely on professionals that have been in the education field who have been in the field 20+ years to design curriculum. Hilliard City Schools is turning to the folks that haven’t even begun to dream about their 20th birthday.
The Student Voice and Choice Committee is comprised of students from each of the three middle schools. This group most recently met with Mr. Wise, Mr. Morrison, and Secondary Director of Education Mike McDonough to talk about ways they would improve curriculum, instruction, building design, and many other aspects of their school experience. The Voice and Choice Committee will meet once a quarter to ensure that the district vision continues to align with the goals of our young people.
Students from Academy EDU were asked to sit on a panel during IGNITE. The panel discussed awareness surrounding social media and the use of social networks, apps, and cell phones during the school day. The experience was another example of how our students are helping to shape the experiences that we offer in Hilliard City Schools.

Students in the ILC Studio class have been hard at work completing videos for the OSBA Student Video Contest.
The OSBA Student Video challenge is a contest in which students are challenged to “Stand Up for Public Schools” by submitting a video that shows how public schools make a difference. Students are competing to be one of the 3 entries chosen to win a prize for their school.
We’re biased of course, but believe our students have done a fabulous job! Enjoy the video below and let us know what you think!
Walking through the ILC, one cannot help but to notice a number of quotes and inspirational sayings that cover the walls. These motivational pieces are in place to remind students and staff to constantly be mindful of our purpose, which is broadly outlined in our mission statement:
“Revolutionary ideas and experiences that customize learning to meet the educational needs of our community.”
Students in the 7th grade humanities course created and presented communities as part of a unit using the novel “The Giver” and their lessons on the four different types of Government.
