The mission of the hillsdale high school foundation is to provide financial support for hillsdale high school programs that uphold the school's cornerstones (such as its smaller learning communities) while empowering and engaging all students. Hhs is a four year comprehensive high school serving approximately 1,350 students largely from san mateo and foster city, california. In order to realize this mission, the foundation will work directly with hillsdale high school's site council to understand the school's priorities. The foundation coordinates with the site council and school administration in order to establish goals for fund-raising.


Hillsdale high school foundation (hhsf) provides fundraising support and small grants for the school's booster organizations: parent teacher student organization (ptso) and the music, dance, drama and athletics booster groups. Funds provide support for an on campus wellness center, classroom supplies, technology upgrades, teacher wish lists, student seminars, field trips, events and extra curricular opportunities.

hhsf provides funds to the san mateo unified school district (smusd) to support the small learning community model. Funds support advisory teacher salaries. This year hhsf paid for 3 sections of advisory. The advisory sections are an integral part of the slc model, as it meets everyday to work with all students' development inside and outside the classroom. Advisors also meet with each student's group of core teachers regularly to discuss how they are doing in their academic classes.

hhsf has made scholarships available to graduating seniors based on need and merit. Students are selected as recipients for these awards based on school and community service

This organization has single-handedly stepped up to support Hillsdale High School's classes, teachers and booster organizations in the face of State wide budget cuts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In the 2 years my kids have been here, they have raised enough money to save multiple A-G required sections including language, Music, Dance, Drama, and athletic programs through clubs and boosters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

serve on the board and do more to get the word out about our public school needs.
