Mission Statement


On Dec. 4, 1959, U.S. Navy pilot Albert J. Hickman sacrificed his life to save the lives of 750 children who would have been killed had he chosen to eject and allow his plane to crash into the Albert Joe Hickmanschool below him. Our school remembers and honors his sacrifice and seeks to continue his legacy of heroism.
