Montessa Munoz - Hillrise PrincipalIt is with great honor and excitement that I welcome you to the Hillrise Elementary website.  We are the Hillrise Huskies!  Hillrise is a school building built on rich Elkhorn tradition.  We are proud of the culture of excellence we have established through core values and high expectations.  We strive to ensure the success of every student.


As a professional learning community, our most important product is our students’ growth and well-being, so we will continue our efforts to work collaboratively, to use appropriate research-based teaching strategies, and to stay student-focused in order to help every one of our Hillrise students find success. Through setting high expectations for learning, employing motivating and engaging activities, and celebrating successes, we hope to make students’ learning experience at Hillrise extraordinary.


Our partnerships with our parents and our community are another key to our success. We value the support and the input of our parents and community.
