About Us

Hillside Elementary School has served the students of the Lincoln Heights community since 1936. Hillside is tucked between the hill on Griffin Ave and the greater landscape of the Los Angeles Metropolitan downtown. The teachers, administration, and staff collaborate with our families to ensure that our students develop into well-rounded citizens, aspire to be life-long learners, and are college and career ready.
We are a proud of our Gold Ribbon recognition and our Title I Academic Achievement award. We form part of the GO East LA and the Leslie & William McMorrow USC Neighborhood Academic Initiative (NAI) partnership. Hillside and USC NAI have become partners in guiding students for a college bound program. Hillside is very proud of all the students that were accepted to the NAI program.
