Hillside Elementary School Planning


Welcome to the Hillside School Planning Information Page

Planning for appropriate school space for Needham's students continues to be a priority for the School Committee.  Over the last decade the Needham community has generously supported renovations and new school construction projects at three of the elementary schools, Pollard Middle School, and at Needham High School.  In addition, the community completely renovated the High Rock Elementary School and turned it into a new 6th grade center.  We are looking ahead to the renovation and/or replacement of the Hillside and Mitchell elementary schools.  

On February 24, 2015, the Massachusetts School Building Authority Designer Selection Panel voted to appoint Dore and Whittier to conduct the Hillside Feasibility Study.  They have begun the lengthy process and hope to complete his first phase within a year.  Plesse visit this website for periodic updates.
