Hillbrook School & Los Gatos - Together Since 1935
Dear Neighbors,

We are honored to celebrate over 80 years as a part of the Marchmont neighborhood and the greater Los Gatos community. Since our beginning as the Children's Country School, when we welcomed children who were wards of the state, we have enjoyed welcoming students to our safe and nuturing campus and town. We are proud to continue to attract young and curious learners to a place that embodies the warm, close-knit spirit of Los Gatos. 

Hillbrook continues to be a community school in and of Los Gatos, serving many of our families who live and work right here in town. We look forward to enjoying a bright and promising future with you in a place that each one of us is proud to call home.

As always, I welcome the opportunity to hear from you and get to know you as we strive and thrive together. 

Warmly,



Mark Silver, Ph.D.
Head of School
