Founded in 1935, Hillbrook School remains deeply connected to its historical roots as a school where children are known, learning is authentic and active, and success is measured one child at a time. During the past 80 years, we have grown and evolved from a small boarding school serving wards of the state to one of the leading independent schools in the Bay Area. Yet, our vision remains the same - to inspire children to achieve their dreams and reach beyond themselves to make a difference in the world. Hillbrook's Vision 2020 reflects the collaborative efforts of its faculty, staff, leadership, and families, and it incorporates the values of the greater Bay Area community that we call home. The future of Hillbrook is a bright one, and it is because of our shared philosophy and commitment to excellence in providing a diverse, inclusive environment in which students from all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds can inquire, explore, grow, and learn. Key stakeholders came together to cast vision and dream, and from this time together, the Hillbrook School Strategic Plan was born. At this moment of extraordinary strength, we enthusiastically look toward our future, knowing that the best schools continue to ask questions and seek ways to meet our vision and mission better.
