Welcome to Hillside Elementary School!
Dr. Briean Madden, Principal
Hillside School is home to 360 students in Grades Pre-K-4, and 50 staff members each school day.
In an effort to educate the "whole child," our staff has developed new techniques in meeting the special instructional needs of all students while building student self esteem. Pupil motivation, enrichment and appreciation of all cultures and the development of the full potential of critical thinking are areas of concentration for our staff members.
At the Hillside School, in addition to educational programming, emphasis is placed on social growth through community involvement and commitment. Some of the worthwhile projects included, collecting food for a local food bank and Toys for Tots, and contributing to the Ronald McDonald House.
Philadelphia Girls Choir Music Director Jeffrey Smith will hold auditions for girls ages seven and older who have not previously auditioned for the Choir at the Hillside School on Thursday, June 1, beginning at 3:30 p.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m. Girls interested in joining the Choir's training program will be asked to sing a familiar song and perform a few simple singing exercises. This audition is very informal and will last only a few moments. Those girls selected for a final audition will be notified by mail within the month. These local auditions are open to all girls from the area who meet the above criteria and need not be a Mount Laurel Schools student.
|Hillside students, along with students from Countryside, Parkway and Hartford schools, were honored at the March 28 Board of Education meeting for their winning entries in the statewide annual Fire Safety Poster Contest. The five local winners could advance through county and state level judging if selected. View more photos in our Photo Gallery.|
