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

This is a challenging time in public education. Our goal at Hillside High School is to continue to serve the whole child. The life success of our students is based on many factors, and learning how to learn and think is foremost. Our students learn how the depth of one’s knowledge is so much more important than their range of knowledge within a particular academic discipline. That is how people who are successful in any professional area operate. One goes to specialists, not generalists no matter the area.


At Hillside High School, we will continue with our mission to help students find their passion, and we will encourage them to dig as deeply as they can into those areas where they have a passion. We will continue to watch carefully over the emotional well-being of our students and your children. Society is constantly dispersing images through the many varied media sources that our students need to do more, to do better. Clearly these people have not examined the extremely busy and full plate that most Hillside students now work through daily. We will continue to strongly support our elective offerings and our extracurricular opportunities. This is where many find that confidence and hope for their own future.


It is truly an honor to work with these students, administrators and teachers daily. We have a special thing happening at Hillside High School. We are not perfect, kids make mistakes and so do adults, but we remain a place where dreams are born and hopes begin. On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Hillside High School, we hope that you and your families enjoy this very special time of the year.
