Welcome to Hilliard Middle-Senior High!

Greetings Flashes!

 HMSHS continues its century-long traditions of academic excellence, athletic distinction, and talented performing arts.   Because our combination school affords the unique opportunity to develop long-term relationships with our students, they thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. We focus on preparing our students to ‘think big’ and establish goals in their journey of college and career readiness.   

 Dependent on the grade level, students explore engineering and technology-related skills in a technology lab, develop computer skills, learn a skilled trade in areas such as machining, or pursue science aptitudes in agriculture, forestry, or medicine.  Honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Enrollment courses prepare students for college success.  Music and visual arts classes are available, encouraging students to cultivate their artistic gifts.

 As we “Educate, Empower, and Enable” our students, we encourage students to explore and develop fundamental life and leadership skills so they become productive members of society. Our staff is resolute in supporting our students’ success, guiding them in healthy decision making, and inspiring them to tap into their tremendous potential.   

 Interested in becoming involved? We have a spot just for you! Join the Flashes Team through a Booster Club, helping out with Athletics, serving as a chaperone, becoming a member of the School Advisory Council, supporting fundraising opportunities, and much more.
