Getting our students to school!

The Hilliard City Schools cares about your student and that includes making sure your student is safe coming to and from school. There are 8,400 students on 126 buses each day. And those buses cover about 7,500 miles per day on the road. You can be sure drivers like Miss Fergie, who has been a driver for 29 years, and the entire transportation staff is working hard to get your student safely home to you. If you have any questions about transportation you can contact them here.

Magic – We all Have the Power

“Write the way you talk.”

That was what she said to me, and I never forgot it.

Her name was Nancy Peterson (Mrs. Peterson to the seventh-grade version of me) and in that moment – for me – I felt it: magic.

The light bulb went off; the lesson made sense; my confidence grew. Read More

All Hands In!

When a need arises, you can always find a staff member ready to step in. During the first week of school Avery Elementary needed a crossing guard. Director of Human Resources Roy Walker was there and jumped right in. Just one of the great things about the Hilliard City School Staff, everyone cares about your student. There is a willingness to jump in and get things done, because we care about your student.

There is a need for three crossing guards in the district. These positions are for two hours a day, one hour in the morning and one hour at dismissal. The pay is $7.85 per hour. If you, or someone you know is interested please e-mail Roy Walker. You can also call his office at 614-921-7000

Hilliard Station Bonding!

What a big step it is to go from elementary school to sixth grade. The Hilliard Station Staff knows how important team building can be. Not only does it open the lines of communication, but the students learn how to work together. Today they spent some time outside making new friends and learning new skills.

Understanding Global Populations Through A Middle School Mind

It’s a simple color coded sticker Mr. Colby Hirns places on his students at Hilliard Memorial Middle School, but it represents a portion of a continent’s population. When students see how small the U.S. is compared to the rest of the world, their eyes are opened to an understanding of what his World Studies class will mean to them. Through world history students can learn the culture and development of other nations. In this class he used stickers to grab their attention but snuck in math and team building skills too. Students created equations to determine how many people were born each day and worked together to solve the problem. Mr. Hirn’s lesson: If we just learned about U.S. history we’d never learn how the global world we live in actually works.

Message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents,

Today, the Ohio Department of Education will release Local Report Card (LRC) information for districts all across the state. While we are eager to engage with residents about what this data means, it is important to know that no report card or rating system is perfect. Report cards can’t tell the complete story of a student’s educational experience and no single test can ever define the effectiveness of our educators. Read More
