Zoo to You!

The wonderful folks from Wildlife Wonders brought their "Zoo to You" program to HCES. They taught us about animals from all corners of the globe. A kangaroo, an African Serval cat, a parrot, an alligator, and the 14 foot-long albino python seen here were all included in the show.

Welcome to Hill City Elementary School...Home of the HAWKS!


Pickens County Schools Vision Statement: Graduation and life preparation for all.


Mission Statement:
We will educate our students in a safe, nurturing, respectful, and fiscally responsible environment that holds the highest expectations.


We believe:

- Each student will have the opportunity to learn, to be successful, and to become a good citizen.
- All students can learn; however, some learn by different methods and at different speeds.
- Teaching and learning best takes place in a safe and nurturing environment. 
- The education of each student must be an effort that involves the support and participation of the school, parents, and community. 
- Schools are accountable for student achievement and should strive for continued improvement. 
- Quality education requires fiscally responsible expenditures for quality staff, programs, facilities, equipment, and technology.
- Recruiting, employing, and nurturing dedicated, well-qualified, and highly professional employees is important to a successful education program. 
- All staff should have access to standards-based, collaborative staff development to improve professional skills.
- All policy, administrative, instructional, and educational support decisions should be based on student needs.
- Extracurricular activities are important in the overall development of students, and these experiences contribute to academic success.
