The Principals' Institute awards the Schools Transforming Leadership distinction to campuses that are making exceptional strides on their journeys to provide innovative learning opportunities for all students.
Hillwood was recognized for the innovative steps it is taking to embrace an all-inclusive technological learning environment, implement the Engaged 2 Learn model, and provide more rigorous units of study, among other transformational efforts. HMS also touted its Husky Year End Studies (YES) initiative as providing a more balanced and reinvigorated state and local partnership with the campus.
