Green is the color to honor all of those who battle mitochondrial disease and those who have lost the battle. Myles was a friend to everyone he met and we dedicated a Buddy Bench in his memory. This bench is a place where all students can find a friend like him to play with and enjoy life like he loved to do.

Tim Kight, Brian Kight, and the team from Focus 3 work in the corporate world and must come with a hefty price tag. How is the district able to afford bringing Focus 3 to Hilliard Schools?
Focus 3 and the Hilliard City School District are in partnership for the creation of R-Factor materials in the K-12 Education space. By working together, we have agreed to create material, lessons, and documents that can be used to spread this work to a larger client base in the future. We are blessed to work with Tim and Brian Kight; they have dedicated time, expertise, and talent to our district. We are proud to be partners. Our work as a district is an “in kind” payment for Focus 3’s traditional fees; our agreement does not require any monetary payment to Focus 3. It is truly a great opportunity to live our mission – to ensure that every student is Ready for Tomorrow by learning and teaching every day. Read More
Brown fourth grade students welcomed two new students this year from Taiwan. During gym class the students were playing Four Square. The students worked with Google Translate to help each other speak their native languages and teach their new friends the game. In Hilliard, our diversity is our strength; it is what makes Hilliard students Ready for Tomorrow. When our students work together to help each other we have a stronger community. Our teachers work tirelessly to meet the unique needs of every student in our District.
