Welcome to Hillside Elementary School!

About 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.

 
 
A Path to Success 2030:
Please Complete The Online Survey
 
The final phase in Mount Laurel Schools' Strategic Planning Initiative before a new action plan is written is to garner public input via the Online Community Survey, both for those who have participated in the process thus far and those who were unable to attend previous sessions. Won't you please add your voice to help shape the future of education for Mount Laurel's children?
The deadline to respond to the survey is January 31.
 
 

Mount Laurel's Online Registration System for New Students

For your convenience, Mount Laurel School District utilizes an online service where you can complete necessary registration forms at your convenience. At this time, you may only use this system to register new students for the current school year. Do not register students for the 2018-2019 school year until the annual rollover takes place on March 12, 2018. To do so will lose all of your information and you will be required to repeat the process. The registration process is not complete until you bring the originals of the required documents to the school for verification.
 
 
 
  • Because so many of our parents commute long distances to work each day, we send these calls out beginning at 5 a.m., so that childcare arrangements can be made.
We will not call you
earlier than 5 a.m.
  • Make sure to check our Facebook and Twitter Pages, and our district and school web pages for updates.
