Together We Are Making a Difference at Hillsdale High

Each year the Hillsdale High School Foundation (HHSF) seeks financial support to sustain Hillsdale High School’s unique academic environment of Small Learning Communities (SLCs), a model that provides a personalized, rigorous and engaging education.

The Foundation is committed to bringing together Hillsdale’s parent, alumni and the business communities for the benefit of all students at Hillsdale High School.

The National Education Policy Center out of the University of Colorado has named Hillsdale a “School of Opportunity”, the first in California to earn the gold level and one of 8 schools to be so recognized across the country this year. The Schools of Opportunity designation comes after a detailed application and a visit from the Center and it reflects the fact that Hillsdale has implemented specific practices and structures that the NEPC recognizes as most effective in creating equitable and powerful learning environments. The Schools of Opportunity rankings were created to counter the increase in standardized test-based rankings that show up in magazines like U.S. News and World Report. It is a ranking that aligns with the values that have driven our work for many years.
