Hillside Elementary Construction Updates

  • Hillside Elementary Construction Projects

    Hillside Elementary is located in the Historic Valley Junction neighborhood and emphasizes our four pillars of Respect, Responsibility, Safety, and Caring. As we partner with families and community members, we strive to provide educational opportunities that will prepare our students for post-secondary training, careers, and life beyond Hillside. Our staff seeks to engage students at a deeper level of inquiry and understanding that can be achieved with strong educational approaches. We believe that engaging academics, positive community, culturally-responsive teaching and family partnerships will help our students be successful in their life journey.
