Principal's Message


Welcome to Maple Hill, the Home of the HAWKS!

It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the Principal at Maple Hill Elementary School. Maple Hill is an incredible place for all who walk through its doors. The staff at Maple Hill have pride in their work and strive every day to make Maple Hill a special place. We have innovated teachers and dedicated staff members committed to providing students with opportunities to cultivate their kind hearts, strong minds, brave spirits, and Hawk Pride.

Our Mission Statement says it all. “At Maple Hill, it is our mission to establish a school environment where every student has the opportunity to receive a stellar education — one that meets their individual needs in a safe and loving environment where their hearts are ignited, their spirits are encouraged, and their minds are challenged. We strive to ensure that all students who walk through the Maple Hill doors are given the tools, skills, and support to discover their true self-worth, make the impossible possible, and are inspired to make the world a better place.”

Maple Hill Elementary is the recipient of the 2016 Gold Ribbon School Award and has been recognized as a California Distinguished School two times. We take pride in the balance between academic rigor and character development. Maple Hill also has been a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports) school since 2014. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. In August 2017, Maple Hill received the “Gold” Award from The California PBIS Coalition. In August of 2021, Maple Hill was the recipient of the “Platinum” Award for our work in promoting positive behavior intervention supports with our students and showing that we have tiered level supports for our students both academically and behaviorally. This award is a great honor and another testament to all of the great things happening at Maple Hill.

At Maple Hill, it is essential that everyone who steps through our doors - students, teachers, and family members alike – are excited to be here and feel like they belong! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I look forward to a fantastic year. If I can be of any assistance, please email me at [email protected] or call the front office at (909) 861-6224.
