The first day of school for students at Shiloh Hills

Shiloh Hills Elementary School is one of five elementary schools in the Wilson School District. With over 6,000 students, Wilson is recognized as the highest achieving school district in Berks County. Despite facing challenges, Shiloh Hills Elementary has not only closed the achievement gap, but has excelled at overall academic performance.

Shiloh Hills is ranked as the 20th best elementary school (out of 1,551 schools) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. With a School Performance Profile score of 94.3, Shiloh Hills was the highest scoring school (K-12) in the county in 2016. Our SPP score and PSSA results have earned us the distinction of "Title One Distinguished School" in 2014 and 2015. As a result of these honors, we were able to receive an Innovation Grant Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for $47,000.

To forge a positive community presence and provide opportunities to enhance the reading skills of our students, Shiloh Hills has developed numerous initiatives. A partnership was developed with Mohn's Hill Church to provide ongoing professional learning opportunities with church members in order to support their summer reading initiatives. We also created a professional learning community entitled "Reading Learning Community," which serves as a discussion forum for staff to share instructional best practices, review educational articles and ensure we are meeting the needs of all of our students.

Shiloh Hills' students and dedicated staff members have led the way towards the District's lofty standards of educational excellence. We truly believe in our motto, "Wilson's Pride...Our Children."
