    Dear Hilhi Families,

    I am writing today to let you know that Assistant Principal Courtney Leonard has accepted the job of principal at Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School in Eugene, and will therefore be leaving Hilhi at the end of this school year.

    Though she is genuinely excited for her next steps, which also include entering a doctoral program at the University of Oregon and a new family role, it is difficult for her to leave Hilhi, as she truly believes in the importance and necessity of the work being done there on behalf of students.

    Ms. Leonard’s selection is being announced in Eugene this afternoon, and because it is so late in the school year, we will be posting her position this afternoon as well. We want to have as much time as possible to identify and hire a strong candidate as your next assistant principal. We hope to have that selection completed by mid-June.

    If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to contact me at lewwillk@hsd.k12.or.us or 503-844-1500.

    Estimadas familias de Hilhi:

    Hoy, les escribo para hacerles saber que la subdirectora Courtney Leonard ha aceptado el puesto de directora en la Escuela Primaria Charlemagne French Immersion en Eugene, y por lo tanto se irá de Hilhi al final de este año escolar.

    A pesar de que está genuinamente emocionada sobre sus siguientes pasos, que también incluye ingresando en un programa de doctorado en la Universidad de Oregón y un nuevo rol en su familia, para ella, es difícil dejar Hilhi, ya que ella realmente cree en la importancia y la necesidad del trabajo que se está haciendo allí en nombre de los estudiantes.

    Se anunciará la contratación de la Sra. Leonard en Eugene esta tarde, y debido a que estamos tan cerca del final del año escolar, también anunciaremos su puesto vacante esta tarde. Queremos tener la mayor cantidad de tiempo posible para identificar y contratar a un candidato sólido como su próximo subdirector. Esperamos tener ese proceso de selección completado a mediados de junio.

    Si tienen preguntas sobre el proceso, por favor, no duden en comunicarse conmigo: lewwillk@hsd.k12.or.us o 503-844-1500.

    Dear Hilhi Families,

    I’m writing to you today to let you know that this school year will be my last at Hillsboro High School, as I have accepted the job of executive director of secondary programs in the Lake Oswego School District, effective July 1, 2018.

    While I am excited about this new opportunity and the personal and professional growth it will offer, I am also sad to leave this amazing school, staff, and student body.

    A process for filling my position is still being determined and will be announced soon.

    Thank you very much for your partnership and support over these past two and a half years. I have learned and developed as both an individual and as a leader, and I will always be grateful for my time spent here at Hilhi.

Principal's Message

  • Lou Bailey Dear Hilhi Families,

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

    I am thrilled and honored to be your Principal and to serve our learning community. For those of you new to Hilhi, we are thrilled to welcome you to the Spartan family, and for those families returning, welcome back to another exciting school year!

    We will be enrolling nearly 1,300 students this fall, and we are eager to welcome our new freshmen class, all of our new students in grades 10-12, and looking forward to an amazing year as our seniors begin their last year in high school!

    Hilhi is an outstanding school with a rich tradition of excellence, school spirit, and immense pride.  I am very impressed with the academic options and opportunities available to all Hilhi students.  In addition, I am so appreciative of the relentless focus on learning from our teachers, students, and community. As a comprehensive high school, we get to showcase our students as they excel in our academic program, successfully participate in athletics and activities, and display their talents in our fine and performing arts programs. 

    Our staff is ready for the challenges and opportunities this school year will bring.  We understand we need to continue to ensure each and every student achieves at a high level and is challenged.  In addition, we have several important focus areas for us this year: we need to continue to create meaningful and stronger relationships with students as it is important teachers know each of their student’s name, need, and strength and students know adults care for them; we need to improve our student attendance rate and we need your support in this goal and make sure your student attends school each and every day; and we want to make sure every student enrolls in courses that lead them to be College and Career prepared after they graduate from Hilhi!

    I encourage you to get to know your Guidance Counselor, stay connected to your student’s teachers, and help keep your student focused and organized.  We are all in this together, and we are here for you whenever you need our support.

    We are extremely excited to make the 2017-2018 school year an amazing one.  I am honored to be part of the Hilhi family and look forward to the year…GO SPARTS!


    Lou Bailey, Principal
