Middle School Principal - Mr. Tim Keib's Message

Welcome to Hillsdale Middle School. The faculty and staff are proud of our reputation of having a safe, warm and caring environment.

Hillsdale Middle School is dedicated to preparing our students for their next phase of life. We strive to prepare the whole child, engaging them in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities. We welcome the partnerships with parents, students, and community members as we train our students to be active participants in their 21st century educational experience. 

Our staff has spent time training in the Olweus Anti-Bullying Prevention Program and A.L.I.C.E. training.  We are beginning to implement Marzano’s High Yield Strategies for learners.  We use innovative teaching strategies such as team teaching and the Socratic method. 

Our students have the opportunity to work with Smart Boards and computers every day.  They are introduced to the worlds of robotics and agriculture in our STEM classes, and learn about their creative sides in our Drama Club’s student-directed plays and the music departments concerts. 


Go Falcons!

Mr. Keib
