Two Hilliard Elementary Schools Awarded 21st Century Learning Center Grants

We are proud to announce Brown and Horizon Elementary have been awarded 21st Century Federal Grants. This is the second time for Horizon to win the grant to support their New Horizons and Power Hour Programs.

New Horizons is an afterschool program focused on offering students opportunities that they may not have at home. We have generated a list of 48 different classes spanning from Lego robotics to learning how to knit that we offer students after school. Our classes are filled with critical thinking strategies such as building your own computer to discovery with dissecting a squid. Our focus is on the whole child. We also have classes that build relationships such as leadership lessons and building family dynamics. Read More

Hilliard Brings Coding to the Classroom Experience

The Hilliard City School District continues to create experiences that prepare our students to be Ready for Tomorrow.

Our students must learn their mathematics facts and processes. Social studies, science, and fine arts are (and will continue to be) the bedrock of academic preparation. Read More
