It is the mission of the Hillside Public School's Office of Student Services to provide the opportunity for each student that has been identified as eligible to receive special education services, to achieve maximum intellectual, academic, social, and emotional growth. Our goal is to ensure that each student reaches their full potential, develops a positive self-image, and becomes a productive citizen in order to live a happy and fulfilling life.
