STEAM is What We Do, and Hawks are Who We Are

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.
