Our child is just over 2/3 through the first year at Hillview. It was probably the usual dramas of 6th grade to start. But with all the fun things to do and learn, supportive teachers and counselors, and friends of course ... it's been great. Our already savvy computer user has grown even MORE comfortable with technology with the new iPads. The academies sound scary but aren't. The ideas about somewhat sheltering and encouraging the 6th graders have all worked for our child. I was skeptical about the Qu3st (study hall of sorts), but it has helped keep the homework beast tamed just fine. Mini course week was not only an amazing feat of logistics, but a great way for kids to try something new and grow in fun new directions. I'm seeing more self-confidence and independence these days (of course! but in good ways :). Parents are welcome and can volunteer if they are interested and have time. But it's not required for working parents. Mr. B, the principal might be a bit arrogant, and I suspect the teachers don't always get a say, but he does get things done. Will be interested to see the test scores the next couple years.

It's is the best school know that we can have the help we need thanks to our new Principle Mr. Burmeister who has made the community in the school a better place. Also we are glad to have iPads as a tool to our learning. I think that it needs to improve in bringing more EPA people on the circle to change their route in life to help them in those who really want to go far that it should have at least a 50% white kids and the other 50% to be Mexicans, Asians, Tongans to make the community between the different race in the community of Hillview Middles School to bring together the leaders that can make a change where everyone is equal where more Mexicans, to gone, Asian, and white work together to know that it does not matter the race you are but how working together with others is something that can be a great thing.

Hillview Middle School offers a superior-quality and well-rounded education. The principal and assistant principal are young, inspired, progressive and experienced, with excellent leadership skills and willingness to weave strong values into all school programs. The principal was nominated for national principal of the year last year. Staff, students and parents admire/appreciate his leadership, energy, attitude and skill. The school is building innovation into the curriculum by implementing recommendations of a design team of parents/staff/school district leaders that used Stanford's Design School principles and practices. The community of parents at Hillview is invested in the success of each student and staff member; many volunteer for projects and programs. This year Hillview is offering an outstanding series of free presentations by experts in education, raising teens, safe use of technology, and I plan to take advantage of them. My son is in his last year at Hillview and has blossomed academically, emotionally and socially there. The only negative has been a PE program hampered by too little space during construction of the new campus, still not quite finished.

Hillview is an excellent Middle School. Great new principal, bringing fresh ideas to an already very good school. Completely new campus has a comfortable open design. Our child has many friends. We know many of the parents - it has the feel of a community school. Academy groupings allow same teachers to work with a group of students in various subjects. Academic standards are high, but school environment is not excessively competitive.

Great Experience for our son... He's an 8th grader this year and unlike some of the other posters, our experience has been outstanding. * Homework level is appropriate - He's an A/A- student and has all his homework except for special projects completed by the time I get home at 6pm. * The academy system is a good thing - it gives the kids a team identity within the larger school and give the teachers more time on with the same kids. Things might vary by academy, but our son has had two good years in a row, with only one lackluster teacher (who left at the end of the year) * The electives are good - kids have the option of double-advanced math, high school spanish, plus multiple bands including a stage and jazz band. * Grades are on online via PowerSchool and teachers are easily accessible via email if there are questions.

This school overloads the children with way too much homework. I hear 1 1/2 hours for 6th grade, but it's more like 3 to 4 hours. All my child has time to do is dash frantically through the work in order to get everything done. The teachers are harsh, overwhelmed and unsympathetic. They don't want to hear from the parents, but are unapproachable to the students. My child's self-esteem is at an all-time low. We are thinking of private schools for the first time, although my child scores well on standardized tests and has lots of friends.

I used to go to Hillview and loved it! Unfortunately the new principal is awful. He completely got rid of the unique activities all of us students got to participate in. Also, he changed around the school configuration. Now there are "academies", which separate students into three different groups.


Posted July 20, 2011

Hillview used to be a tremendous school with outstanding programs, but the new principal blew off the traditions that made the school great, and with the introduction of the academy system, mediocrity has become institutionalized. Many teachers will privately tell you that they are not happy, and my current Hillview student has been subjected to a dumbed-down curriculum. The Hillview that so many of us remember fondly is no more!.

Outstanding school. Students graduate well prepared for high school. Wonderful programs with caring engaged teachers and counselors. Strong parent involvement shows. It is a larger school with a small school feel. Starting in 2012 the all new state of the art campus will be completed. There is no reason for a typical student to pay for private school.

i just stared going to hill view 2 weeks ago and last week i wasnt there but i think hillview is a really great school, and it has a lot of great teachers... im in the sixthe grad


Posted September 22, 2010

Hillview Middle School now functions with several academies per grade starting this year. This brings the "small community" feel to a large school. You get the best of both worlds. There are a lot of opportunities for the students before and after school, and a great school spirit. Academics are challenging and there is a lot of homework. This is a better match for us than any of the pricey private schools around!

I go to Hillview, and it is the best school in the world!!!! There's a lot of homework, but the teachers are great and I'm learning a lot. But it's fun, too. My core class, at least, does a lot of stuff with technology, and I love that. Hillview is amazing!!!!!!!!!

Hillview rocks because the teachers are really cool and you actually learn something, while still having fun. It is very demanding but in the end it is worth it and you come out of that year a better person and a better student

I go to Hillview. Honestly , its a great school with great teachers and Atheltics. Good programs for kids to join and parents that can definetly get involved. I love this school. Its way better than the previous schools I've been to in California. I enjoy my classes and i have the best team of teachers:the Texas team. But I can only write so much about Hillview so I'm coming to my closing. -Ashlyn Alexander

Private School quality education at a Public School. Very happy with all the teachers my children have had. As a parent there isn't a lot to do but you can be involved (this is Middle School after all.)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
