A California Gold Ribbon School

On Tuesday, April 18th, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson named Hillside Middle School, AKA Hillside STEAM Academy, a California Gold Ribbon School!  This high achievement is recognition by the state that Hillside has created an amazing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) focused curriculum that impacts all students.  Our 8 Pathways, high test scores, Portfolio, innovative bell schedule, dynamic and involved students and parents, and most of all, a highly professional and dedicated staff, are not just our bragging points, but are now a state recognized model program.  


Thank you to the entire Hillside and Simi Valley community for helping make Hillside a California Gold Ribbon School.

April Update

Special Bell Schedule - There will be a special bell schedule for the next several weeks due to testing and Portfolio Day.  Here is the bell schedule for 4/24 through 5-12.  Check back here for more bell schedule updates.


Just a reminder about our Parking Lot.  Please be courteous to other drivers and aware of students crossing to their cars.  Safety should come before everything else.  Also, please follow directions on the signs regarding which lanes are for pass through only and which lanes are safe for pick up and drop off.  


Another reminder that toys should not be brought to school.  Many students have purchased "spinners" and are learning how to do all sorts of amazing tricks using them, but they are considered toys and may be confiscated.  Please encourage your students to leave all toys at home so that school can continue to be a productive learning environment.


SVUSD is offering summer school for middle and high school students. For information regarding summer school please visit


VCOE is also offering a wide range of FREE summer camps for students exiting 8th grade through 12th grade with a focus on many of the pathways taught throughout the county.  Did we mention that they FREE?  Check them out at  By the way, these summer camps are FREE!


Remember to check Aeries and the School Calendar weekly to keep up on important school events and your student's information.  Students are bringing home their yellow Advisory folders to help them plan for their week's SSP activities and need your guidance.  Students have also completed their Naviance and the district mailed parent account information for you to use to view and mentor your students through middle and high school as they grow and prepare for college and career beyond school
