From the Desk of Wendy Jones, HIS Principal:
Welcome to Hillsboro Intermediate School - a community fostering learning and growth through respect and responsibility. As believers in lifelong learning, we share a commitment to continued growth. Our tradition of a strong school community has given us great reason to celebrate; we remain committed to working arduously with every student to reach his/her potential. HIS has a tradition of excellence in the classroom and beyond. Our dedicated teachers and staff continue to provide our students an excellent education. Parent and community involvement are critical to the success of our students. We welcome your involvement in your child’s educational experience and our school activities. We are pleased to offer you this communication tool as one of many ways in which we interact with our parents and community.
The administration, faculty and staff at HIS are committed to providing the best educational services for our students. Integrating academic rigor and relevance necessary for continued success into high school and beyond is one of our top priorities. Emphasis on character education and good citizenship for all students is also a priority. In addition to academic growth, an essential component of a child’s educational experience is social, emotional, and physical development. By designing a comprehensive program that focuses on the whole child, we hope to assist each student in developing an enthusiasm for learning that includes happiness, a positive self-image, and an inquisitive nature. We are blessed here at HIS to have respectful and caring students.
We are extremely proud of the learning environment that has been created in Hillsboro. On behalf of the entire HIS community, thank you for taking an interest in our school and we anticipate great things to happen here at HIS!
