Cedar Hill's Mission

Cedar Hill students, staff and families are committed to ensuring high levels of learning for all students and providing a positive, safe, and consistent climate that promotes student character.

Our Vision

Cedar Hill is a professional learning community of students, educators, and parents recognized for the excellence of our safe, student-centered environment, the character of our students and staff, and the involvement of parents and community partnerships.

We have an unwavering commitment to engage in meaningful collaboration with peers, parents, and students to: discover and implement the best research-based practices; analyze student data; and make informed decisions about differentiated instruction and student learning.

Students actively engage in hands-on learning, utilize technology on a daily basis, and achieve individually at their highest level as lifelong learners who are prepared for a globally diverse society.

Off The Chart and Off Their Teacher!!!! Great Behavior Choices!
