Serving each student through commitment, caring, creativity, and continuous growth is the mission of Hillandale Elementary School. By providing a school climate that focuses on teamwork, and by setting high expectations for all members of the school community, we accomplish our mission. It is our goal to provide all students at Hillandale with the highest quality instruction so that each student is able to achieve at his/her highest potential while becoming good citizens and lifelong learner.
