School Awards & Recognition


2015 - 2017 Apple Distinguished School

In June of 2015, Hillview was invited to submit a description of its 1:1 iPad program for consideration of Apple Distinguished School recognition. In the fall of 2015, we engaged our staff in validating our work with iPads, documented our growth over the past three years, and collected examples of student work that told our story. Apple agreed that our 1:1 iPad program, a ubiquitous element of teaching and learning at Hillview, demonstrated visionary leadership, innovative teaching and learning, ongoing professional development, compelling evidence of success, and a flexible learning environment.

2015 California Gold Ribbon School

In 2015, with the California Distinguished School program was on hiatus as California transitions to new assessment and accountability standards, the state of California sought to recognize outstanding educational programs and practices in middle schools and high schools. Hillview submitted its "Future of Learning Initiative," which described in detail our programs that support and enhance both academic and social-emotional growth in our students. It was with great pride that we accepted this recognition in May of 2015.
