Welcome to Hilltop Drive Elementary!

Hilltop logoHilltop Drive Elementary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment. We are committed to working with families and our community to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our diverse student population. We motivate students to achieve their maximum potential, to value lifelong learning, and to be tolerant of and kind to others. Teachers collaborate to provide a CA State Standards- and student-based school curriculum.

We hold ourselves accountable for increasing the academic achievement of all students. Our academic focus is on increasing the reading proficiency of all students. Our goal is that all students read at or above grade level by the end of third grade. Our guiding question is, "Are students listening, speaking, READING, writing, and THINKING more and better each day?" The Hilltop staff is dedicated to preparing students to become respectful, responsible, independent learners equipped with the critical thinking skills needed to be college and career ready, successful 21st Century citizens.
