Asa G. Hilliard Elementary School - East Point, GA

School Dedication Week (Feb 22 - Feb 26)

February 22 to February 26 is Asa G. Hilliard Elementary School Dedication Week, when we will be formally dedicating our school in honor of our namesake, Dr. Asa Grant Hilliard III, an internationally-recognized researcher and scholar in the fields of education and world history. In honor of this occasion, we offer several important facts about Dr. Hilliard that we want everyone in the Hilliard Elementary School Family to know.

Dr. Asa G. Hilliard's Core Belief

All children are capable of achieving excellence. The keys to their achievement are high expectations, well-trained teachers, and the abandonment of standardized testing as the primary criteria in evaluating the capacity of children to learn. He authored more than a thousand publications on subjects including educational policy, teaching strategies, testing, child growth and development, and African history and culture. Several of his programs for teaching, assessment, and pluralistic curricula became national models.
