Principal's Message

  • Gregg O'Mara Dear Miller Education Center families and Hillsboro Big Picture families,

    My staff and I have been busy preparing for the 2018-2019 school year and we can't wait to get started. As we transition from a traditional alternative education model to Big Picture Learning we will continue to provide all students with the education they need and deserve to prepare for College/Career and beyond. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Schools can't function well without a strong partnership between school/family and community and I am pleased to introduce Rosa Roble to our staff, her primary role will be to connect with our families as we look to create a Parent Advisory Council(PAC)for our Big Picture School and her secondary role will be to connect with our Hispanic Business partners in downtown Hillsboro.  Please feel free to reach out to Ms. Robles if you would like to be a member of our PAC. 

    Last year over 50 students earned their GED with us. If you know of someone in our community that needs information regarding one of our many programs please have them visit our website or stop by to see if we can help them with their educational needs.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Gregg O'Mara
    Director of Alternative Programming
    Hillsboro School District
