In addtion to the rigorous grade level curriculum, students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade will participate in five "special" classes throughout the week. These include art, music, physical education, Spanish, and Imagine. Starting in August 2017 students will use the Imagination Station (Mac Lab), MakerSpace, and Library resources in conjunction with the Engineering Design Process to further develop the 4Cs (Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking) skills in a class called, "Imagine."
Students in grades 6-8 choose elective courses to compliment ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science classes at each grade level. The elective course offerings vary each year, but Hilburn consistently offer Health/Physical Education, Career & Technical Education (CTE), Band, Spanish, and Dramatics.
