School Improvement

Hickory Woods Elementary's School Improvement Plan was created through discussion, collaboration, and analysis of information by our instructional staff. Each goal, objective, strategy, and activity supports our vision for creating a culture of learners that are leaders making a positive impact on their community. Our over-arching mission, in partnership with our community, is to ensure that all children learn, grow, and become safe, respectful, and responsible citizens in our school, our community, and in the world.
