Serving each student through commitment, caring, creativity, and continuous growth is the mission of Hillandale Elementary School. By providing a school climate that focuses on teamwork, and by setting high expectations for all members of the school community, we accomplish our mission. It is our goal to provide all students at Hillandale with the highest quality instruction so that each student is able to achieve at his/her highest potential while becoming good citizens and lifelong learners.
Providing quality instruction through a balanced academic program which promotes well-rounded students who achieve at their highest level is the instructional focus at Hillandale. Our students receive excellent instruction in the classroom and are offered many opportunities for enrichment and acceleration. Individual, small group, and extended day instruction accelerates students in reading and math. Through our partnership with Communities In Schools we also provide one-on-one tutoring for students through our reading volunteer program.
