High School Principal - Mr. Davis Baker

Welcome to Hillsdale High School, home of the Mighty Falcons!


The students and community of the Hillsdale Local Schools give us so much to be proud of with their high level of achievements in the classroom, exciting performances in the creative and performing arts and exemplary success in interscholastic athletics competition. Our school district’s motto is “Building Character – Expecting Excellence”, and we live it every day with every student!  All students are blessed with something they can do well and enjoy!  At Hillsdale High each student is able to find and participate in a variety of activities that allows them to grow academically, socially, and physically, as they mature from children into young adults.  All students will develop and complete school well prepared to pursue a career of their choice and dreams!


This is a very exciting time to be a part of the Hillsdale Local Schools as a great deal of research, planning and preparation are in place for the start of the construction of a new state of the art school facility.  When completed all students in grades K-12 will be located on one campus and important issues including safety and security, advanced levels of technology, and pertinent academic programs will be designed to meet the needs of all learners and teachers.  As the high school principal I have great appreciation for the Hillsdale Board of Education and Superintendent Steve Dickerson as they continue to work diligently to move forward with the plans to build new schools aligned to meet the needs of ALL learners of the future.


I am very excited to be able to join the faculty and staff of the Hillsdale Local Schools.  My hope is to find ways to make an excellent district even better!  I believe great things are possible by working closely with the administration, staff, students and parents.  My lines of communication are always open and your suggestions and ideas are always welcome.  I wish you and your son/daughter(s) attending the Hillsdale Local Schools the very best. Please feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions, ideas or comments.  I look forward to serving you.
