Welcome From the Principal
Welcome to Hickman Elementary! We believe that parents and teachers working together are the key to creating competent, well-rounded, responsible and confident learners.
We strongly believe in and support the potential of every student. We love to watch kids learn and grow, and we feel privileged to be part of our students’ lives.
Hand in hand, we are actively working together for our kids’ successes!
A neighborhood school in the Donelson area, Hickman Elementary serves a richly diverse population reflecting our community. We are dedicated to serving our students through teacher collaboration, personalized learning and classroom engagement. Our school provides support and resources to meet the needs of all students, including Encore for gifted and talented students, and English Learner services for students and families who primarily speak another language.
A robust related arts program features choir and drama, which routinely hold performances in the community. In addition, students participate in technology classes, which help them learn how to use the computer and hone their typing skills. Blended learning opportunities are available throughout the school, and we offer after-school tutoring to students in need. In conjunction with our Limitless Libraries program, our full-time librarian and library assistant help provide our students access to a large library collection.
The school’s unique location on the same campus as Donelson Middle Prep makes Hickman Elementary a convenient choice for families with multiple students. Its shared campus also facilitates a smooth transition into middle school. Hickman has an inner courtyard, accessible only from inside the school, that features raised garden beds where our students grow fruits and vegetables. Classes and teachers can enjoy the area by having a picnic outside, while students in Pre-K use this as a safe area to ride play equipment. Some of the fruits and vegetables grown in the garden even make it into school lunches.
