Wayne students work polls on March 15

Numerous Wayne seniors got a hands-on lesson in civics when they worked the election polls on March 15. The students worked with the Boards of Elections in both Montgomery and Miami counties as part of Youth at the Booth, an initiative to create lifelong, informed voters and stimulate awareness of and participation in our political process.

This is just one of many ways we strive to help our students see the value of becoming lifelong participants in our community!

Introducing the “New Experience” in HHCS

There is a new story to tell about education in our schools. It’s great news for ALL residents of Huber Heights. Our success is for the future of our community—“we are all in this together!”

We are still about teaching the basics—reading, English, math, science, and history. But wait until you see what else we are doing with education!

“The New Experience” is how we are preparing kids for the future. “The New Experience” is what education is about in 2016 and how different it is from education in 1986…1994…2005. It’s about new programs, new opportunities for students and professional development for teachers, new technology, and more.
