Hillside Science Department

The Hillside Township School District is committed to excellence. We believe that all children are entitled to an education that will equip them to become productive citizens of the twenty-first century. We believe that an education grounded in the fundamental principles of science will provide students with the skills and content necessary to become our future leaders.


A sound science education is grounded in the principles of inquiry and rigor. Children are actively engaged in learning as they model real-world scientific behaviors to construct knowledge. They have ample opportunities to manipulate materials in ways that are developmentally appropriate to their age. They work in an environment that encourages them to take risks, think critically, make models, note patterns and anomalies in those patterns. Children are encouraged to ask questions, not just the "how" and the "what" of observed phenomena, but also the "why".


Our program provides teachers with cost-effective science materials that are aligned to the Common Core Science Standards and incorporate instructional strategies that are research-based, and provides teachers with a deep understanding of science and the pedagogical underpinnings of science.  Our teachers receive quality professional development from the Science Partnership which was started from the Merck Institute of Science Education and Project Lead the Way. Our K-8 kit based program encourages "hands-on science" and is endorsed by the National Science Foundation. We are excited to implement Project Lead the Way courses at the middle school and high school level for the 2016-2017 school year.


We are currently in the process of aligning our curriculum, instruction and assessment to meet the Next Generation Science Standards.  By September 2017, the K-12 Science Curriculum will be reviewed, edited and updated to meet the new standards. Teachers have been attending various professional development sessions to prepare for the adoption.
