Hillview After-School Homework and Support Programs
Hillview offers a number of after-school programs to assist students with homework completion, to give them targeted support in math, and to support their social and emotional development. Some of these programs are drop-in services, while others require a referral from our counselors or administrative team.
Hillview also provides a late bus that students in the various after-school program can take home. This bus is free of charge to Hillview students. Click on the following LINK for the late bus stops and schedule.
Homework Center: M, Tu - 3:15 - 4:45; W, Th - 2:30 - 4:30
Homework Center is a drop-in program housed in the Hillview library. Open to all students, the center is a quiet environment where students have access to textbooks and computers, and where they can get their homework started or finished. Supervised by a Hillview staff member, the Homework Center does not provide targeted help with academics, though certainly, the monitor and adult volunteers will give as much help of they can, if asked.

Math Clinic provides targeted support for all levels of math. The Clinic is supervised by a Hillview math teacher and instructional aide, and is assisted by high school-age counselors.

Math Clinic takes place in the Hillview library conference room.

These mentors give students guidance in emotional and social areas. Students are referred to Flight School through our counselors or administrative team.
