Principal's Message

Joe Trybulski

At Hillsborough Middle School, student life centers around interdisciplinary teams of teachers for literacy, math, science and social studies.  A special education teacher serves each team as a learning specialist supporting students in and out of class.  The team structure is central to a middle school design.  It brings together the best of both worlds - content specialty and expertise with a common planning time for better communication among the team teachers.  This arrangement serves to create a learning environment that is most responsive to the needs of students as they enter the adolescent years.  

In addition, students have the opportunity for study in one of five world languages as well as art, music, family & consumer science, and industrial technology.  Our health and physical education program with its focus on individual fitness and teamwork rounds out the program of studies for our students.  We know that this is both an exciting and challenging time of life, but we are stronger by working together.

I hope you will use the resources on this site to connect with areas of interest and to become more involved in the life of the school.  As a student, check out a club or organization of interest.  As a parent, join our Home & School Association and stay in touch with your child's teachers, the guidance office, and my office via email [email protected] or phone 431-6600 ext. 2282. We are here for you.
