Principal's Message

Welcome to South School’s website. As you peruse our website, you too will see what a great place South Hillsborough School is and all that we have to offer our students! To begin, here is an introduction to what South School values and prioritizes for our staff, students and community…

South School is a place that holds the development of “the whole child” as our top priority. Staff members collaborate with one another on a regular basis to support and challenge our students as they work towards the high academic and behavioral standards we have established for our learning community. As you visit our website, you’ll notice the many activities and learning opportunities that exist at South School. The educational experiences provided by our staff, and greatly supported by our parents, help to challenge our students to achieve academic and personal successes.

Our school also benefits from the support and leadership of a forward-thinking school board, superintendent and district office. We also have amazing support from the community through the efforts and commitment of the Hillsborough Schools Foundation (HSF). It truly does “take a village” to raise a child, and it continues to be my pleasure to work along side wonderful educators and community members to provide a high quality education for our students.

Our schools have received 26 California Distinguished School Awards, 7 National Blue Ribbon Awards, and 29 Kent Awards for Innovative Programs. Our success is due to high quality staff, 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. Thank you!
