The School Counseling Program at Hillside Elementary School works tirelessly to ensure a positive school climate in which each student’s well-being and safety are a priority. Our wonderful school counselor, Mrs. Coles, collaborates with administrators, our school psychologist, teachers, social worker, and office managers to deliver invaluable services to Hillside’s students.
The school counseling team uses data to close the academic and disciplinary gap. They also utilize a restorative practice model in order to help our school transition to a less punitive, more restorative space in which students' self-worth is recognized.
With the help of students, family, community members, staff, and administration, the school counseling team is committed to creating a more beautiful Hillside.
