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.
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.
We will not call you
