HIseville Elementary Principal

      Welcome to Hiseville Elementary, where only the best is good enough.  We are looking forward to the best school year yet in 20-21!  This school year is certainly going to be unique.  Some of Cardinals will be learning at home and some will be coming to our building. While many things will look different on the surface, the core of what we are about at Hiseville Elementary will not change. We are all Cardinals, whether learning at home or learning at school during the unprecedented pandemic. I want to ensure all families that we will do our best to keep our Cardinals, "Healthy at Hiseville".  We do have some good news in all of this.  This past summer we learned that Hiseville Elementary was one of three Kentucky schools that was awarded a $100,000 fitness center by the National Foundation for the Governors' Fitness Council.  We will be unveiling our state of the art fitness center in the Fall. While Covid-19 might be delaying things a bit, soon we will be up and fully operational.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for our students and eventually our community! This fitness center couldn't have come at a better time for our students!

     Our philosophy at Hiseville Elementary is to educate all children for the maximum development of their potential. We believe in the development of each child, regardless of abilities, past experience, race, sex, origin, social or economic status.  All children should be given an opportunity to develop, to the greatest possible extent, their capacities for happy, useful and successful lives. Citizenship is a key focus at our school. That will not change.

     At Hiseville Elementary we believe the instructional program is the basic foundation of our school, and the instructional program should assure each student access to those basic academic skills and knowledge appropriate to each child's needs. We utilize only research based programs with proven success to educate your children.  Instruction is differentiated and individualized to give our children the best educational experience possible. We believe that science, social studies and the arts are as important as reading and math to your child's education experience. Literacy is embedded throughout the content areas and will continue to be, whether your child is learning virtually or at school learning.

    At Hiseville, we strive for complete cooperation, clear communication, and mutual respect among the members of the board of education, SBDM members, the administrators, the teachers, the parents, the students and the community.  This year, that relationship will be more important than ever.

    We believe that the American educational system must be the most forceful institution in contributing to a democracy and we pledge to fulfill our role in that process so your children can be productive, informed citizens regardless of the times we find ourselves in.




                                                Cooperate with others.

                                                Achieve a positive attitude.

                                                Respect everyone.

                                                Demonstrate responsibility.

                                                Strive for success.


     These are our guidelines for success at Hiseville Elementary.  We feel that these guidelines will serve our students in all aspects of life and as  they become productive members of society. Join us on this journey at Hiseville Elementary and 20-21 will be a journey for the books!
