Dear Families,

At North Elementary we are committed to the development of the “whole child” so that students can reach their physical, socio-emotional, and intellectual potential. We believe that each child is unique and precious and so it is our duty to support him/her to be engaged, empowered and full of joy in their learning. Through a strong collaboration between our parents, teachers, and community members, our students will be able to become people of good character, innovators and problems solvers, effective communicators, global citizens, lifelong learners and effective users of information, media and technology.

Our teachers work very hard to provide our students with an excellent quality education. They collaborate several hours a week to design and tailor instruction for all students and also receive strong professional development opportunities. Their dedication is the foundation of our school. In addition to a strong academic foundation, our students also benefit from participating in innovative programs and events, such as, the iLab, Spanish language instruction for our 4th and 5th graders, our instrumental and vocal music programs, our annual Tech Challenge, and our awarded SEAL program. All of these support our students in reaching their potential.

North’s success could not be possible without the support from the Hillsborough Schools Foundation (HSF) and our wonderful Parent Board. They are a strong part of what makes this school so special and they work collaboratively with our school to support us through fundraising events, parent events, and volunteering at our school. Some of the great events that they put together each year include Family Heritage Day, Movie Night and Fun Run.

I am truly thrilled to be part of this great community of students, teachers, and parents. I look forward to a wonderful school year and to working with you.


Aleyda Barrera

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!
