For the 2024 year, the Pre-Kindergarten Program requires that students qualify before we can register them.

FULL IN PLANNED CLASSES
For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Hillview School is full in planned classes from Kindergarten to Grade 6 in the regular program. A Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register. We will only accept resident students in Grades 1 to 6 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.
If you are registering for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.
At Hillview School we believe in Growing Together, Connecting Community and Inspiring Minds!
It is my privilege to welcome you to the Hillview School community. We are a small school with a huge heart. Hillview School builds strong citizenship through working collectively with all members of both our area and school community and our amazing school staff work as a collaborative team to accommodate all learning needs.
Programming in our elementary classrooms target growth and achievement in the areas of literacy and numeracy through authentic and diverse learning opportunities. All grades are supported with a range of technology and digital learning tools. Strong citizenship and collaborative work related to anti-racism and reconciliation is a priority in our school. In addition, Hillview School offers a comprehensive Health and Wellness program through the APPLE School project and a focus on mental health capacity building. Hillview staff work hard to ensure that our students leave with the skills they need to be successful in their future learning.
Hillview is also home to a Pre-Kindergarten program. The Pre-Kindergarten Program provides intervention and support to pre-school children with severe developmental delays and is directly funded through Alberta Education Program Unit Funding. The children we serve range in age from 2.8 to 5 years and have a severe delay in their development. Each class has a team of professionals who work with children on speech, mobility and everyday tasks such as communicating and exploring through play. Children attend five half days of programming each week and most are bussed to the school.
A strong connection with our parent community is an integral aspect of student success in school. We encourage parents to be active in their child’s learning and to work in partnership with the school to support their child's academic and social/emotional growth. The Hillview Edmonton Parents Association (H.E.P.A.) supports student learning by providing funds for field trips and experiences that reach beyond the classroom walls. Their support ensures all students benefit from our healthy, vibrant school community.
As partners in your child’s education I look forward to working together to keep Hillview School a special place for children to learn and grow.
Here's to a rewarding and productive school year,
