Greeting Hillside Families and Friends,
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to the best high school in the state of North Carolina! Hillside is a comprehensive high school with a rich legacy and deep roots in the Durham community and beyond.
Hillside is proud to be the home of the best academic programs offered to students to include; AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), Business and Finance Academy, Hornet Academy (9th grade transitional program), International Baccalaureate Program, Advanced Placement courses, Army Junior ROTC, and a wide variety of core and elective courses.
Representing over 25 different countries, our fantastic students strive each day to exemplify our school's core values of team work, collaboration, respect, work ethic, and most importantly, students first. They are afforded the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities that are academic, social, and service oriented. Coupled with their rigorous academic endeavors, these extra-curricular opportunities have prepared our students for further studies at a variety of post-secondary institutions--public, private, Ivy League, and HBCUs--as well as the military and the work force.
You won't find a more dedicated group of educators who are well prepared to support and challenge your students. Our teachers have varied backgrounds, a wide range of degrees paired with diverse certifications, and most importantly, a passion for educating students. They work diligently to nurture the "whole student" attending to their academic, physical, and socio-emotional needs.
As principal of Hillside High School, I ask that you stay involved in your child's education and support our work and the work of our parent organizations. A school is only as strong and good as the families and communities it serves. We aim to remain the best because we know that you are sending us your best gifts--your children! Lets work together to give our students the best education possible. And remember, Hornets Hustle Hardest! #H3
SWARMing with Pride,
William Logan, Ph.D.
