Greetings Hornet Students, Parents, Alumni, and Friends:
On behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff, I officially welcome all our amazing students to the 2022-23 school year!
Our return to in-person learning last year proved itself to be one of the most challenging years as sporadic attendance, low academic achievement, poor student behavior, and faculty turnover plagued schools across the country. Hillside was not exempt from these challenges, but as always, we found a way to persevere and achieve. The Centennial Class of 2022 was offered more than $26 million in scholarships and achieved an 86.1% graduation rate! Because graduation is always the goal, I challenge you to begin thinking about how we can work together to achieve even higher.
Hillside’s students play a vital role in our school’s success, so it is imperative that the adults in their lives work collaboratively to remove the barriers that may impede learning. I will need everyone’s help to create a school culture where ALL students advocate for themselves, embrace challenging work, are willing to go the extra mile to excel in anything, and are respectful of each other and themselves. It is time for Hillside to elevate!
As we celebrate the 100 years anniversary of our school’s existence, we are uniquely positioned to set the highest standards in academics, the arts, athletics, and appropriate behavior for students who will matriculate through these halls for the next 100 years. This vision of excellence begins now.
Remember, you are the Hornets who will help #HHSElevate our school to unimaginable heights!
SWARMing with Pride,
Principal: Dr. William Logan
