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

This year the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) will take place on March 27th, March 28th, March 29th, March 30th, March 31st and April 3rd.  The Make-up test sessions will be held on  April 4th and April 5th.  All students will take their test during the regular scheduled times. The primary purpose of PARCC is to provide high quality assessments of students’ progression toward postsecondary readiness and success. Additionally, PARCC results influence decisions related to curriculum and instruction. With this in mind, we ask that you encourage your child to put forth his/her best effort on PARCC, so that results accurately reflect your student’s growth over the past year.

Additionally, students should not have any electronics in the classroom as it is a violation of our testing procedures.   Any student caught with a cell phone will have their test voided and the parent/guardian will be required to come into school to pick it up

The PARCC test is a requirement for high school graduation.
