Cradle to College
Cradle to College

Hemlock Public School District has so many enticing things to offer students and their families from the cradle all the way to college. The district provides a childcare center, early middle college program, and a 1:1 computing initiative in place to support anywhere, anytime, and any place learning, along with a full offering of athletics, performing arts, industrial arts, and robotics.

Superintendent Don Killingbeck said, “We offer programs starting with infants and ending with students in our early middle college.”

Board President, Dr. Katherine Ellison, said, “Hemlock is a small town with a big heart.  What we offer that other districts can’t is personal attention to each student and his or her family.”

The district has been fortunate to consistently maintain enrollment higher than projection for the last three years. It appears that some families have moved into the community while others have selected school of choice as an option. Hemlock is known to be a safe and friendly school with excellent academics and lots of extracurricular opportunities for students.

Superintendent Don Killingbeck said, “Parents are selecting to move into the community or use the school choice option because they want their children to experience the quality education and caring staff that Hemlock is known for.”  

The district encourages parents to schedule a tour with the building principal(s) if they are considering attending for the 2018-19 school year. Building principals are available in the buildings starting Monday, August 6th. The window for processing school of choice applications is August 6 to 20. If parents are considering school of choice with Hemlock Public School District, applications can be found on our website at or at the central office located in the Hemlock Elementary building at 200 Wilson Street.
