A Message from Mr. Gish

Welcome to Hillsboro Elementary/Middle School in historic Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee.

My name is Cameron Gish, and I am proud to return to the Hillsboro School community as your principal.  As a former Hillsboro teacher, I know first-hand the magic that is created in Leiper’s Fork each and every day.  It is my honor to serve our students, staff, parents, and community this year!

At our school, we promote lifelong learning.  We want students to be curious, ask questions, think, and problem solve.  We cultivate ability, intellect, and character by empowering students to take responsibility for their own learning and actions.  We believe that students should respect themselves, respect others, and take pride in their school.  We challenge our students and set high expectations through a supportive learning environment.  We focus on the whole child and the social/emotional needs of our community.  It is our goal that students become productive and responsible citizens, contributing in a positive way to their world.

Hillsboro School has a rich tradition of excellence, including a designation by the United States Department of Education as a National Blue-Ribbon School.  Our talented students, dedicated faculty, invested parents, and supportive community help make Hillsboro feel like “home!”

Welcome to the Hillsboro family!
