California Gold Ribbon School

Hillview Middle School was selected as a 2017 California Gold Ribbon School. We are the only Gold Ribbon middle school in the Antelope Valley and the only school selected in the AV for the 2017 award. Great job to the entire Hillview Community!

California Department of Education Gold Ribbon School

Hillview Middle School is located in the southwest portion of the Antelope Valley. It serves 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and has approximately 990 students enrolled. 6th grade students from Cottonwood, Esperanza, and Rancho Vista feed into Hillview Middle School. The Hillview sixth grade population is made up of students that applied to attend a 6th grade honors program. These students were selected to attend Hillview through an application process which required good attendance and grades. These students come from various schools within the district and outside of the district. The school buildings consist of one main building composed of 20 classrooms, two Science Labs, Library, Home Economics room, Art Room, Woodshop, two Computer Labs and a Cafeteria. There are also a meeting/conference room, a speech room, a counselor’s office, an office for our bi-lingual aide, and the administrative offices. In addition, there are 16 relocatable classrooms, a music room, and a gymnasium with boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, and two additional computer labs.

School District Integrated Pest Management Plan

It is the goal of Westside Union School District to implement IPM by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.

Our pest management objectives are:

  • To implement a safe and effective program to protect the health and well-being of students and staff, plus maintain a productive learning environment.
  • Prevent pests from spreading in the schools and minimize pesticide exposure to students, staff, and the public.
