Principal’s Message


    Hillsdale Families,

I look forward to working with students, staff, families and the community to create a dynamic learning experience for our students. At Hillsdale Middle School our mission focuses on developing lifelong learners, leaders and artists through collaboration and innovative teaching strategies.


    At Hillsdale students become lifelong learners through rigorous curriculum that forces students think critically, creatively and collaborate with others to solve real world problems. Hillsdale strives to be a school where engaging curriculum is provided in all courses and allows every student to develop a love for learning.


    Hillsdale’s leadership programs include: W.E.B. (Where Everyone Belongs), A.S.B., sports leadership and many more. These provide students an opportunity to develop their leadership skills. These leadership skills will allow Hillsdale student’s to be the leaders of industry in the 21st century.


    Hillsdale students find their creative passion through an extensive arts program. The arts program includes: band, strings, drama, performing arts and computer coding. Our extensive arts program provides an opportunity for all students to express themselves creatively.


    With all of these wonderful programs in place, the 2019/2020 school year will be a wonderful experience for Hillsdale students. I look forward to supporting your students and all Hillsdale staff members in creating the engaging school this community deserves.
