Schedule is Periods1 3 5 7 are on odd days of week and 2 4 6 8 on even. Difficult to keep track. 05/13/2014 got a letter of truancy for dates as far back as 11/07/2013 stating my child has 3 days unexcused absences and 1 tardy which I wrote him a note on all occasions. My son said he gave the notes to the Advisory teacher and she just looked at them and said ok. This is a serious accusation due to lack of responsibility by authority figures. I think 1 unexcused absence would warrant a call from school. Have had 1 Parent/Teacher conference day (AKA-back to school night) all teachers sat on the perimeter of gym while parents stood in line to talk with teacher if we got to talk to them before they left. Seems like fund raising.is main priority. Today my son said the teacher put them in groups instructed them to each write a summary when they were done work as a group to finish project. My son finished and started to read a book waiting for rest of team to finish. Teacher told him no reading and took book. At end of class he asked for it back she said that was disrespectful next time she will keep it. HA don't think so. At least he was being productive instead of disruptive.

Hillview Middle School palmdale California 93551 wonderful advid program very close to home teachers really care
Hillview is a great school by all means. Excellent teachers some are positively very strict which I'm very happy with taking the extra step to push their students to excel. Very cooperative and understanding staff and administration pleasant to deal with. My oldest son is graduating in June and my middle son is joing Hillview in August so our constructive relation will continue. WAY TO GO HILLVIEW. KEEP IT UP.
The Principal Mr Garza many of the teaches including the amazing staff that help with cross the cross walk office personal and lunch aid help to make this school run smoothly and be outstanding!!
My Son is attending and will be graduating in June. It has been a great and challenging experience for him. I am extremely impressed with the teaching and curriculum that Hillview Middle School offers. It has great teachers and a great staff and principal and vice-principal. I am looking forward in sending my daughter in the future.
Great leadership involved parents. This school (like most) is exactly what you make it and gives the involved parent the tools for their child to succeed. My daughter is thriving here.
Hillview is a great school with a caring staff. I like the changes the new principal and vice principal have implemented. They are on top of things and are always out and about. The academics are right on with state standards. Keep up the good work HV!
.i am an 8th gade studentgreat school with good teachers.no violence there are alot of activities and one of the best sports team in antolope valley.i will mis this school. go hawks!!!!!!!
Poor schooling under funded new principal is terrible!
I am a parent of three kids who have attended and are attending this school. Hillview has the best teachers! They keep children busy with many extracurricular activities. The promote being good citizen as well as acadmic achievement. Their AVID program run by Ms. Greaver is wonderul! Keep up the good work Hillview.
Hillveiw is the school where almost every kid wants to go. The people are friendley and its not hard to choose good friends. The teachers are awsome and they care anout the kkids so much our sport teams are the best! The Hillveiw cheerleaders are the best our cross country team and so much more! Go Hawks!
Hillview is a decent school. The sports are the best in the league and always have been. Certain teachers such as Mrs. Glasscock Mr. Iverson Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Crosser actually make you think about things and ask questions. Not only that but they also make learning fun. Although the sports and the academics are decent the school itself is trashy.
Hillview does challenge students to do their best both in the classroom and during extracurricular activities. The school involves the parents in its curriculum. The school's administrative processes could be much improved however.
It is the best school ever and I miss it very much. It had the best teachers Mrs. Smith Mrs.Eby Mrs.Curtier Mrs. Greaver Mr. Conrad and some of the best students Haley Fonzi(me!) Zachary Green Kendall Mead Ricardo Jacky Leslie and one well miss is Danielle Fernandez!
I have spoken with the Principal many times our first conversation was prior to the move to principal status. As far as his ideas and wanting to make changes for the better. So far I have yet to see changes that could really make a big difference for the kids.Unfortunatley when it comes to the actual taking care of something he states to parents this has yet to happen.We have given this school almost 3 years to help our child meetings etc...and have received zero results.I do know the difference from another state & compared to all of Ca(born & raised Ca) the meaning of 'for the children' is not really 'for the children'.It is for the best scores and the # rating they have. Which comes from scores not actual parents or kids.I greatly am disappointed in myself for believing in this school and this district 4 allowing the way parents/kids are treated.
Hillview is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in each child.
I have spoken with the principle on a couple occasions he seems to care very much about improving the school. I can't remember the last time I have seen this in someone in the Ca. schools. It's important to him that the staff & students improve with communication and education. I must say so far I am very impressed and have enjoyed each conversation with him. Also to me each time we have spoken I left feeling wow there is someone who cares about his school and wants the best for it. I am very hopeful with the upcoming years my child has there and can't wait to see the progress.
They have excellent sport teams good acedemics and good teachers. If you have a child that is interested in sports and other activities hillview should be a good school for them.
We moved from the Los Angeles school district which had a caucasion rate of 2% my blond hair Blue eyed sixth grader would get picked on every day. Now she is where there is a good mix and she has gone from D's and F's to A's and B's. Westside school District is great!
