Hillsboro ISD's Portrait of a Learner

  • Creator/Innovator Communicator Collaborator Critical Thinker

Preparing Today's Students for Tomorrow's World

  • In lockstep with Hillsboro ISD's mission of preparing our students for tomorrow's world, Hillsboro ISD developed a Portrait of a Learner profile to illustrate characteristics of a 21st century learner.  HISD's Portrait of a Learner embodies four skills necessary for students to be successful:  critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity/innovation.  This defines our approach to teaching and learning--engaging students in programs and initiatives designed specifically to help them master all four skills.
