Hickman Elementary is extraordinary because of the incredible leadership. Students perform better because our principals provide strong leadership and successfully convey the school's goals, visions, and collaborate with the teachers to enhance their skills. The principals are always involved in the discovery of and solutions to problems.

Hickman Elementary has highly qualified staff who instruct at a high level of effectiveness. The staff has a strong bond and connection with each other, which is crucial for a healthy school environment. They are fun, energetic, and very creative. They believe in their student's potential to succeed and push them to their limits.

The school has a secured and organized learning environment, which is important for maximum learning to occur. In addition, the school has rich technology resources where each student has a device to use which is essential in building new skills. Last but not least, the parents and community partners play a great role in helping the school. We are grateful for everything that they do to make our school great.
