• Our Story:

      As the newest school in our district located on the Harvest Valley Elementary School campus, Hillside Innovation Academy serves students in grades TK-8.  

      With the goal of giving opportunities to students to develop positive value, we are dedicated to serving the needs of the whole child and strive to empower our youth through a personalized, innovative learning approach to help them become positive community leaders. 

      Because we recognize the unique needs of our students and families, we are champions for equity in education and learning. As such, we proudly offer three program pathways to best meet the specific needs of our scholars. 

      These pathways are:


    • student and parent working on home school assignmentThe Home School Program is a self-paced, digital curriculum provided by the district in which the student learns online. Parents/guardians assist their students with learning and set the academic schedule. Virtual daily check-in with the teacher and weekly or bi-weekly meetings with the teacher to review the student's learning plan. Personalized support from teachers with frequent communication with parents/guardians. The Home School Program teacher is located at the Romoland School District Office.


    • student engaged in virtual program learning

      The Virtual Program, in which the student is assigned to a virtual classroom with a teacher leading the student's instruction online for most of the school day. Live synchronous instruction is taught by the teacher with asynchronous assignments completed independently. Students will work in both whole group and small group virtual settings. The academic schedule follows regular school hours. Personalized support from teachers with frequent communication with parents and guardians.


    • academy student

      The Academy Program is an in-person program for students in grades 6-8 to provide personalized learning paths, support, and mentoring in academics, attendance, behavior, motivation, and work habits. It is designed to support students who are having difficulty experiencing success in the regular school program, perhaps due to a catastrophic incident preventing them from participation/success in the regular school program, and/or the student is in need of personalized interventions for chronic issues with attendance, behavior, and/or academics. Students are assigned to one teacher for instruction in all subject areas in a small class-sized environment. The program is located on the Harvest Valley Elementary School campus and follows the Romoland School District calendar. The hours of operation adhere to a middle school bell schedule.
