Hillside High School Change
Hillside High School students will return to school this fall and once again experience a traditional schedule. As we prepare students for a challenging curriculum, aligned to the Common Core Standards, it has become evident that students need to see their teachers daily. In fact the state of NJ, Department of Education, recommended we adopt a schedule where there is daily instruction in mathematics and language arts. While block scheduling served our students well during the Core Curriculum Content Standards era, it is believed that daily focus on rigorous content will best support our students. We look forward to a successful academic year at Hillside High School. Once again, we would like to remind you that Hillside High School will start at 8:10 A.M. and the day will end at 2:51 P.M. Should you have any questions regarding the High School feel free to contact the administration at (908) 352-7664 ext 8400.
