Block H is a recognition program that rewards Hillview students for their various contributions to the school and community. Over the course of their three years at Hillview, students earn points toward their Block H (200+ points = Block H Award plus a field trip prize!). While the Block H is a coveted award, the true benefit of participating in the program is the development of crucial skills that create a well-rounded, civic-minded, and accomplished student.
For service activities, including self-reported community service hours outside Hillview, students earn 1 point per hour of service. For school service, there is a fixed point for certain activities. Each year ASB will vote to create a "price list" for points earned as students "tier up" and look toward achieving the block H award.

The Block H system is set up to be fair to all students, depending on when they join Hillview:
- All three years at Hillview - 200 points
- Two years at Hillview (7th and 8th grades) - 150 points
- One year at Hillview (8th grade) - 100 points
For every 100 points earned above 200, a students wil earn additional recognition, the Star Award.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, students currently in 8th grade for the 2021-2022 school year (the Class of 2022) will only have to reach 100. 7th graders (the class of 2023) will have to reach 150, and 6th graders will have the normal amount, 200. This is to account for the missing time lost during the pandemic, when opportunities to earn points were few.
