About South Hill Elementary



Greetings and Welcome to South Hill Elementary School! Our school has approximately 345 students Pre-K-5th grade. We are located in Ithaca, NY. Our community is comprised of students that join us from Ithaca’s South Hill neighborhood and the communities of Danby, Willseyville, and Brooktondale. We also have students whose families elect to open-enroll from other Ithaca City School District neighborhoods.

PTA

Our PTA is very active while offering many opportunities to volunteer and be collaborative partners within our school community. Families frequently support students during school in the classrooms, computer lab, and during lunch and recess. Our PTA hosts several events and activities for students and families throughout the school year. If you have not already joined please consider joining our PTA.

STAFF

We have approximately 80 highly skilled, enthusiastic, and dedicated staff members. Our staff participates in various collaborations around academic and social-emotional development by taking on leadership roles in developing and implementing best practices around teaching and learning. We have a School Instructional Leadership Team that looks at whole school practices, in an effort to support the development of our school wide goals. The SILT also works to support District and school wide initiatives such as Professional Learning Communities, Responsive Classroom, Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), and Imagine Learning, etc. . In addition, we have School Site Council, a shared decision making team which includes teachers, staff, families and community members’.

PARTNERSHIPS

South Hill has exciting partnerships with Ithaca College, Cornell University, and Cortland State. Through these partnerships, students and faculty from the colleges regularly visit our school providing additional educational opportunities and experiences for our students and staff.
