About

Nestled in the hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Kensington Hilltop Elementary School is a public K-6 school for Kensington and its surrounding communities.  High academic standards along with a reputation for kindness and respect set the tone for approximately 560 students and their families each year.  Kensington Hilltop School (KHS) is noted for its strong parent support.  KHS has several active parent groups that dedicate hundreds of hours helping in classrooms, driving on field trips, upgrading our school environment and classrooms, fundraising, and working to pass legislation to provide strong academic programs for all students.  Our parent community raises funds to provide enrichment classes in art, science, computers, vocal and instrumental music, and P.E. Support programs in reading and math are available for those students who need additional assistance.  Our academic programs are aligned with the California State Standards at all grade levels.  Kensington Hilltop School is a special place for everyone – students, teachers, and parents alike.
