HMC-1 Schools

  • HMC-1 offers a full range of schools for our families. Recently, HMC-1 rolled out a plan to make bold changes in our middle school. We are continuing to develop the middle school experience initiative, working with school leadership to launch an innovative middle experience in Fall 2023. Now, middle school students are housed at the 6th and 7th Grade Center, as well as the 8th Grade Center.

    New this year is our Evening Academy, a program designed to help previous high schoolers who have not completed the requirements to either earn their high school diploma or GED. Offered by our Burke Alternative Academy team, these students work with teachers in the evening to work on Hi-SAT programming to complete the requirements. In addition, our Real-World Learning team continues to work with partners to offer additional programs that give our students market-value credentials (e.g., construction, welding, technology, etc.) and skills after graduation. 

    There are seven elementary schools in the Hickman Mills C-1 School District, two middle schools, and one high school:

    • Kindergarten through fifth grade: elementary schools, by attendance area
    • Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade: 6th and 7th Grade Center and 8th Grade Center, by attendance area
    • Ninth through twelfth grade: Ruskin High School

    The Freda Markley Early Childhood Center offers preschool programs and other educational opportunities for the important early years of a child's development.
