Hillside Middle School... a STEAM academy

Welcome to Hillside Middle School, home of the Hawks! Our school is an extraordinary place where students get to explore their passions in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and math. We have many electives in our program including: dance, theater, ceramics, painting, choir, piano, strings orchestra, concert band, NASA/rocketry, digital photography, web design and computer programming. Our program also offers great rigor in the core subjects - including honors level courses and high school Geometry and Spanish I. 


Constitution Day and Club Rush Week

On September 17th, we recognize Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America.  All students will be learning about this event in their Advisory class, with 8th graders having a special assembly sponsored by Simi Valley Noontime Rotarians, Mayor Bob Huber and the Daughters of the American Revolution.


On September 18th, our long awaited for Club Rush will occur.  Students will be encouraged to identify school sponsored activities and groups and join one or more that they share an interest in.  Starting in Advisory, this activity will continue through lunch time.  Encourage your students to get the most out of school by joining a club, team or activity.



We have many new and exciting programs at Hillside Middle School. As a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) academy, we offer our student many opportunities to participate in exciting and meaningful activities. To help us maintain and grow our STEAM activities, we need your participation and support!


Join us on Tuesday, September 2 @ 6:30 PM in the Cafeteria for our first meeting! Click here for more information or to donate to our STEAM programs.
