Our schools have received 26 California Distinguished School Awards, 7 National Blue Ribbon Awards, 29 Kent Awards for Innovative Programs, and numerous other accolades. Our success is due to high quality staff members, committed and involved families and community members, a supportive Board, a cohesive vision, and a strong commitment to excellence.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. We purchased AEDs for each site, created a new lane at Crocker to ease congestion, and upgraded the safety of our sites through several other facilities projects. Thank you!
