Welcome to Hickory Elementary!
Hickory Elementary opened in September, 1961 with 278 students. Our enrollment now is over 900 students. It was named for a nearby street. Hickory covers 8.5 acres. The attractive, one and two-story school campus is located adjacent to a city park which increases its sense of spaciousness and provides another area for school activities.
Hickory has over 40 classrooms. The school has a library, a newly upgraded computer laboratory, an art/science storage room, a science kit/book resource room, an art/music room, a resource specialist room, and a literary trailer used for our reading improvement program.
Emergency drills are routinely held for earthquake, fire preparedness, and sheltering-in-place. Emergency and survival equipment/supplies are available on site.
Our PTA has been most supportive in helping us with supplies, materials, and up-to-date information. Playgrounds are supervised by campus aides and teachers during school hours.
