Our Mission 

Sowing the "Cs" of Success: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking

Hilltop Drive Elementary School prepares students for future success by teaching the standards and skills necessary to live as respectful, responsible, and productive citizens. We motivate students to be tolerant of and kind to others, value lifelong learning, and strive to achieve their greatest potential. As a caring, dedicated staff committed to our students, families, and community, we affect individuals and society at large.

Our Vision

Hilltop Drive Elementary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment. Teachers collaborate to provide a Common Core Standards- and student-based school curriculum. We hold ourselves accountable for increasing the academic achievement of all students. Our academic focus is student output: Increasing quality talk and writing across the curriculum to learn, process, and demonstrate understanding. Our guiding question is, "Are students listening, speaking, reading, writing, and THINKING more and better each day?" The Hilltop staff is dedicated to preparing students to become respectful, responsible, independent learners equipped with the critical thinking skills needed to be college and career ready, successful 21st Century citizens.
