Welcome From the Principal
I am a strong believer that students need to be active participants in their educational journey. The education that they receive in school should prepare them to thrive in the 21st Century. All students have different needs, and as a school, it is our responsibility to ensure that we provide students with the supports needed to ensure that they all meet academic success. Students should receive instruction that is culturally relevant, rigorous, and includes opportunities for students to problem solve, collaborate with their peers, and clearly communicate their thinking. The VILS Program will provide teachers training on technological supports that can be used to increase student engagement and enhance learning experiences. Students will benefit from this program because it provides them with easy access to information, it can accelerate their learning, attend to their varied learning styles, and provide fun ways for students to practice what they are learning. The over-arching goal of HPCS is to empower students to be leaders and bold thinkers that are prepared to be successful in the careers of the future.
T. Mitchell, Principal
