Hillbrook is a junior kindergarten-8th grade school located in Los Gatos, California. Since its founding in 1935, Hillbrook has provided an extraordinary educational experience where children develop a true love of learning for life and for a future we cannot yet imagine. Through Hillbrook's engaging and dynamic educational program, students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve their highest individual potential in school and in life. As learners, our students begin with asking questions, start investigating the problem for which they are solving, collaborate and iterate, and then share their work and learning with others. At Hillbrook, students are known, respected, and valued as individuals.
Every inch of Hillbrook's 14-acre campus is alive with activity: two bridges connect the Lower & Middle School, a creek weaves through campus (you'll often find our science students there), and towering trees provide a refuge for class discussions outdoors.

Hillbrook School Reviews
Our children are very different but both have been supported and nurtured at Hillbrook and given room to grow. Our first child is academically strong and started out shy and reserved. She has been challenged academically and given lots of opportunities to grow out of her shell. Our second child makes friends easily, is very active but needs more instruction and coaching in academic areas. Hillbrook was the right fit for this child as well. The small class sizes allow each child the opportunity to get the necessary attention to grow academically and socially. Hillbrook provides a truly complete educational experience - Academic rigor is strong, without sacrificing a well-rounded education.
Lastly, we have been extremely impressed with with senior administration. They are nationally recognized and we always feel the advice we are receiving is best in class.
