Principal’s Message

Dear Falcon Community:

It is my honor to welcome you to Hilltop Middle School, home of the Falcons!  My name is Luis Aparicio and I am excited to serve this community as your new Principal.

Hilltop Middle School has a very caring staff who is determined to ensure your students’ highest education possible. We believe in developing a coherent and systematic approach to teaching and learning. Our collaborative teams provide enriching experiences that will prepare students for high school, college and life. Although we have placed great emphasis in Effective First Instruction, we also have systems of support before and after school and Saturdays. Our ultimate goal is to prepare our students so that they are successful in life regardless of what path they choose.

The Falcon Way focuses in creating a safe and positive environment that will be conducive to students’ academic, social and emotional well-being. Hilltop Middle School is committed to being a Falcon Family, a school community where mutual respect and collaboration is the norm. Our school culture places heavy emphasis in using Restorative Practices that are genuine and effective to foster a healthy socio-emotional campus. 

Our Falcon Family is committed to preparing our students academically, socially and emotionally so students can be successful citizens in the 21st century. We can make this possible by being a true school community where students, staff, parents and the community in general come together to ensure students’ success. 


Luis Aparicio

Proud Principal
