Back To School

Every new school year begins with great hopes and expectations for our students. As students, teachers, and staff enter the schools of Hillsdale Community Schools on August 22, we want to take you on a journey through the secret life of Hillsdale Community Schools.


You may be aware of some of what we accomplished last year. Consider that we: earned a silver medal at HHS for ranking in the top 10% of the nation for college readiness, DMS was honored as a reward school, our preschool earned a five-star rating, and our BPA and Envirothon teams won state and national championships. But these accomplishments don’t paint a real picture of what we do every day.


We are equipping our students with the tools and skills they need for future success, starting the day they enter school. This includes a rich curriculum that includes and goes beyond basic academics; updated technologies and training to help students navigate complex online information; and helping students apply their classroom lessons to the real world.


Hillsdale Community Schools offers students and families an array of specialized programs and opportunities to ensure that all students’ needs are met and that they are prepared for their future. These opportunities include advanced placement (AP) classes, group and individual tutoring, enrichment programming, athletics, music, dual enrollment, career activities and more.


We have worked hard to build a safe, supportive, and welcoming education community where all students are treated fairly and with respect. Our dedicated teachers, principals, school counselors and other school staff are committed to providing the best education possible for our students. Many of our teachers and other staff have taken classes and other professional development opportunities over the summer to help hone their skills and keep them up-to-date on how to teach our students what they need to know to be ready for the future.


We welcome our families and community members to get engaged and see the great things that are happening at Hillsdale Community Schools. Please join us on Monday, August 20, for our back-to-school open houses.   To keep up-to-date and see what’s going on throughout the year, check out our brand-new web site and consider following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.


We can’t wait to open our school and classroom doors and lead all our students to success in the 2018-19 school year.
