Hillside High School
Principal's Message A Message from the Principal

Hillside High School had a successful school opening.  All students arrived in the required uniform – Khaki pants/skirts, black, white or maroon shirts.  Teachers welcomed students into their classrooms where they provided orientation activities (fire drills, handbook, curriculum, rules and regulations, morning and dismissal procedures, etc.) 


It was a great pleasure meeting and greeting the parents who took the time to visit their children’s classroom on Wednesday, September 27th, at our Back to School Night.  A student’s school success is linked closely to parental involvement, support and interest.
