Shadowing at Hillview

  • Hillview Shadow Program 2022

    Thank you for your interest in Hillview!  We realize that there are many great middle schools on the peninsula, and we appreciate the opportunity to have your child experience what being a Hillview student is like.  Our staff is committed to educating the whole child by fostering a community that values academic excellence, kindness, respect, and tolerance, as well as personal responsibility and self-advocacy.


    Our shadowing program is designed for students who do not attend a school in the MPCSD or do attend one of the MPCSD elementary schools but are weighing other options.  


    If your child does not fall into either of these categories, we are planning to have a “Hillview 6th Grade Preview Day” in the spring where current MPCSD 5th grade students will travel from their respective schools and have a morning to get a feel for what campus is like, learn about the curriculum and interact with students. MPCSD parents will also have  a school-specific Zoom orientation in the spring. Dates and times of the school visit/parent orientation are forthcoming.


    Available shadow dates for 2022:

    February 11, February 18, March 11, March 18, March 25, April 22 and May 27


    Scheduling a Shadow Date:

    Please fill out the following form to schedule a shadow day.


    What to Expect:

    We ask that shadows arrive in the main office by 8:15 and bring with them a book to read, and a snack for brunch (they will not need to bring lunch). Pick up is at 12:00 in the office and please plan to stay for an additional 15-20 minutes for you and your child to meet with our Principal or Assistant Principals.  


    COVID-19 Protocols:

    All students who attend Hillview shadow days must show proof of vaccination. You may upload a copy of your vaccination card during the registration process. If you are unable to upload a file, you can email an image of your child's proof of vaccination to with the subject: Hillview Shadow Day Proof of Vaccination for <Child First Name> <Child Last Name>. In addition, students will be asked to wear a high-quality mask which includes N95, KN95, KF94 and 3-ply surgical masks. If a student desires to wear a cloth mask, they must have a high-quality mask under their cloth mask.
