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.
