Academic Overview

The main goal of Hillsboro Middle School is to provide an enriched academic environment that meets the diverse needs of our student population.  In order to meet this goal, we provide kindergarten through eighth grade students with instruction in four core academic areas:  mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies.

Hillsboro students also experience instruction in the following Related Arts programs:  art, music, computer technology, video broadcast, drama, leadership, and physical education.  Students take two related arts classes at a time: one major and one minor.

Hillsboro Middle offers a variety of programs to support our diverse learner population.  Students with emotional disabilities and learning disabilities receive an individualized curriculum to meet their specific needs. Classroom and resource teachers work together to prepare lessons that use multiple teaching techniques.  This ensures skill mastery by all students regardless of their academic learning disability.
