I have to agree with everyone else. Hillside elementary is very lucky to have such an acceptional group of staff. I was privaleged to have the teacher in C-3 teach my daughter for her kindergarten year. Not only was she an exceptional and hardworking teacher but is overall a wonderful and caring person. Thank you C-3 kindergarten teacher for starting of my childs elementary academic school year so exceptionally!

I have worked at many schools, and I have to say that the teachers and staff are a cut above the rest. The leadership of the principal is exceptional! Never have I seen a principal so skilled at balancing keeping her staff happy and feeling supported AND making sure the parents feel important and needed. I am proud to be apart of the Hillside team and proud to be led by such a positive leader.

Love this school for many reasons: caring, responsive leadership, talented hard working teachers, staff who go beyond their required duties, and parents who care. This school is San Bernardino's prize.

My child is in C-3, and I am so honored my child is given this exceptional teacher. My other children have had her as a teacher in the previous years, so I can honestly say any child is lucky to have a teacher as dedicated as her! She is THE BEST and she shows it to the children through her utmost devotion and dedication to each child, not only for their education but their safety and well being! Her students go on to perform at the highest standards at the best school in the district. If anyone is lucky enough to have a child in her class they should try to devote as much time and effort as this teacher does for each student she has:)

My daughter is in the classroom of C-3. I feel very fortunate to have such a caring teacher for my daughter. My daughter is eager to get to class everyday. I love that she greets the students every morning and makes sure my daughter along with the rest of the class are dismissed safely to their parent. I never worry about my daughter's safety when she is at school. I thank the teacher in C-3 for everything she does!

The Teacher in C3 is a very amazing individual. I personally had her as a teacher about six years ago. She is someone who makes her students a priority and she always has there best interest in mind. I remember always being eager to go to school, because of the wonderful teacher she was and the safe environment she created not just for me but for everyone of my classmates. Any children who have her as a teacher are some of the luckiest kids on earth. You won't find a more motivated and responsible teacher than her. She's the best of the best!

My daughter has been at Hillside since Kinder in the magnet program, and I brought my son over to Hillside for his 5th grade year. I have seen the difference between our home school and Hillside and I love it. They are a school who cares. The new Principal is amazing, I know she really cares for the kids and her and the VP are so willing to work with us if there is a need. The teachers are a cut above our last school. I like MOST of the ladies in the office as well, but nobodies perfect. There are some good things and things that need to be worked on in every school, but over all I am very satisfied with Hillside. I am glad my kids go there.

Great teachers and great Principal. I completely disagree with the previous post. The principal and teachers do everything they can to make sure kids are happy and learning. I have found the Principal always available and ready to help, and I know many parents who are thankful for the changes she has brought. Hillside is the best school in the District, in my opinion.

The learning enviroment at Hillside is great and they have an outstanding music department. I work full time and if it were not for the after school program my son would be a latch key kid. I am very greatful for the programs that are available and the state should stop cutting funds for education!!

My daughter has been going to Hillside for the past 5 years, since preschool, and the teachers there are just incredible. Most of them are smiling at the children, seem to really care about their welfare and are very active in their education. My daughter's preschool teacher still remembers her from 5 years ago and always says hi to me when I am there. You just can't find teachers like this at any school. Parents are always welcome to come in and observe or help in the classroom. I just can not say enough great things about the teachers at Hillside.

I have a 8 year old daughter and a 6 year old son who attends Hillside. W/ my son I have really had no problems but w/my daughter I've had quite a few problems. Every time my daughter would come home with a problem from school, (if it was something little I would let it go) I would make an appointment to go to the school speak to the teachers the prinicipal and who ever I would have to talk to in order to fix the problem. My advice to parents would be to maintain a physical presence in school to let the teachers know that we are taking an active role in our childs teaching and to make them aware that if there is a problem that we will be back.
