About Our School

What do we stand for at HGES?

 Proudly serving the Hickory Grove Community since 1951

 Mission Statements 1.jpeg

Our Mission/Vision

Inspire a strong school culture through a focus on meeting the social emotional needs of students and staff members in order to significantly improve student academic achievement. 

Shared Beliefs


What does No Sidelines Mean to us:

All In:  Be committed and accountable every step of the way. 

Have Heart:  Treat every school stakeholder as if they are a member of your family.

Be Brave:  Take risks & embrace new challenges.

We fulfill our mission and vision statements by following through with our School Improvement Plan, which has a clear focus on two things:  culture and academics.  In terms of culture, we make sure we keep our focus on building strong relationships as a school community.  This includes our staff, parents/families, community members, and of course our students.  In terms of academics, we have a clear focus on using standards and data to drive our instruction.  We make sure we keep our expectations high and monitor data closely to meet individual student needs as well.  This is tough work, and we love having the opportunity to proudly serve this community!
