Description

Hilburn Academy provides an innovative approach in preparing students for success in the 21st Century. Students' unique learning needs are engaged in a rich environment that celebrates personal growth. Collaboration, communication, cooperation and critical thinking skills are foundational to our learning activities, as we know these skills are transferrable across all disciplines and professions. With STEM ideals in mind, academic subjects are integrated whenever possible and based on real-world applications through project-based learning. All of this occurs in a safe and nurturing environment where students are seen as unique individuals, each with special gifts and talents to develop.

Hilburn Academy is in the process of expanding into Wake County's only K-8 school. Sixth grade was added in 2012, with seventh and eighth grades being added in 2013 and 2014. This format provides a unique opportunity for students and families desiring a small-school feel with a large community presence. Transitions from elementary school to a middle school are eliminated with a K-8 format, so teaching and learning may continue seamlessly from one grade level to the next without disruption. Relationships between students, parents and community partners can span nearly a decade at Hilburn, which further contributes to an already vibrant school community.

The school's program provides students with exceptional opportunities: an integrated arts curriculum; global language electives for all students (Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, K-8 - with an additional option of Arabic for grades 6-8), international teachers, a global-regional VIF Passport program and band for students in the upper grades. Career & Technical Education, only available in traditional middle- and high school settings, is integrated by a specialist in all grades starting in Kindergarten. Hilburn students enjoy SmartBoards in every classroom, 200+ iPads for instruction, a new Mac lab, new media collection, new Science & Engineering building and new personal laptops for every student in the middle grades. Additional staff specialists are on hand to ensure meaningful integration and support. Parents, members of the business community and NC State University are very active in supporting Hilburn Academy's academic programs.

In terms of performance, Hilburn exceeded High Growth status in 2011 (Overall and in Math) and earned High Growth status again in 2012 (Overall, Reading and Math). A School of Distinction, Hilburn has exceeded all AYP expectations for success and leads the district in math performance among multiple subgroups. Most importantly, students' individual and team-based work for STEM Expos and daily instruction reveal increasing mastery of 21st century skills. Please explore our program further by visiting our school website, by contacting any Hilburn parent or staff member or by attending one of our scheduled STEM Expos or Open Houses.









Curriculum: STEM Schools Collaborative Network

Do you want your student to be an inventor, scientist, architect or astronaut? The foundation of learning for these high-tech jobs of tomorrow begins with four letters - S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The WCPSS STEM Schools Collaborative Network is a group of 17 schools, dedicated to enhanced strategic planning, professional development, programming and community advocacy around advancements in science and technology.

These schools benefit from a regional and statewide network of shared instructional opportunities and connections to local, state and national leaders focused on the STEM curriculum.

Each school will have:



  • Expert Technology Facilitators

  • Interactive lessons that explore STEM concepts

  • Digital-age learning environments

  • iPad carts (30 iPads) for each grade level

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 7:31 AM, Fri, Oct 31, 2014.

Stop times: Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 3 minutes between stops for neighborhood routes and 10 minutes for express routes. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. With students becoming familiar with this new routine, bus routes may take more time.

Faded Stops: Stops in faded text are on the route, but do not pick up or drop off students attending this school.

Questions?: Contact Transportation.

Can't find your bus stop?: If you cannot find your child's bus stop, please fill out our customer support form to report a missing bus stop.
