Map of Hillside Elementary School address.

I was a student at hillside elementary for four years until i had to move away to the central valley. my experience at hillside was never been able to match to any other school i attended. All the teachers i had during my childhood at hillside i remember would work their best in providing us with the material we needed to succeed. I can not tell how great this school is because I would run out of words. I know that this school will be the most cherished memory I'll ever have of my whole education throughout these years it comes first then my high school memories

Hillside has the hardest working teachers I have ever met! They are dedicated to their students and committed to using small group instruction to deliver a customized education to every child. No child is left behind at hillside!

Hillside Elementary is a school where children come first. The principal is kind but firm. The office staff is the nicest I've ever seen.
