    • We believe all Hillsboro students will graduate ready for college, career and life.
    • We believe the Hillsboro School District represents a community of stakeholders—students, families, educators, and community partners—who share ownership, responsibility, and commitment to the success of our young people.
    • We believe each student is an asset to our community.
    • We believe each student should have an engaging and relevant educational experience, tailored to meet his or her unique set of strengths.
    • We believe the Hillsboro school experience should result in equitable access to college and career opportunities for each student.
    • We believe in educating the whole child, including a variety of character traits and habits that impact academic achievement, global citizenship, and overall quality of life.
