Believing that an educated citizenry is the cornerstone of a democratic society, we advocate public education as the means by which children are prepared to participate meaningfully in society.
The mission of Hillside School District 93 is to provide each child with a comprehensive educational program, to create and foster an environment which maximizes student learning, and to prepare these children to participate meaningfully in a culturally diverse democratic society as literate, capable, problem solving, creative, lifelong learners.
Since 1918 Hillside School District 93 has provided a quality, comprehensive education to the community's children. Hillside School serves most of the Village of Hillside, and portions of Berkeley, Westchester, and Elmhurst. The district is comprised of one school, grades K-8, with approximately 60 educators and an average enrollment of 500 children. The school's ideal size contributes to a warm, friendly, family environment where children come first. Hillside School students consistently exceed expected state performance standards in most tested areas. Graduating students attend District 209 high schools (Proviso West and the Proviso Math and Science Academy).
