King’s Way Christian Schools is pleased to announce the appointment of Allison Hillstrom as the new High School Principal for the 2021-22 school year.
Over the past eight years at King’s Way, Mrs. Hillstrom has been a well-loved math teacher in middle and high school. She also served as the Mathematics Chair for grades 6-12, pioneered the implementation of the award-winning ALEKS program, and sat on several academic and leadership committees including the High School Leadership Team, Advisory Planning Committee, and was last year’s Summer School Coordinator.
Mrs. Hillstrom has a passion for our students, families, and staff; always pursuing authentic relationships and leaning into each individual’s potential. She truly believes each student is amazing and has a bright future ahead. She consistently strives for excellence while also focusing on relationships, accountability, and mutuality.
“I’ve been blessed to call King’s Way my home for almost a decade. The relationships I have with students, families, staff, and leaders are cherished. I’m truly humbled by this opportunity to continue serving King’s Way. I believe I have a God-given natural ability to lead and I’m mindful that this is a spiritual gift that I’m responsible to steward before the Lord. A healthy organization is optimistic about the future and has leaders that are steadfast, unified, and constantly pushing into a positive outlook for the future. It’s important for leaders to truly embrace their callings, and for Christians, it must always be in the context of submission to the Holy Spirit. To this end, I am excited as I step into the role of High School Principal and work alongside a truly amazing and trustworthy team of administrators and staff. I look forward to partnering with the Holy Spirit, our families, and staff to lead others into His best plans and desires for King’s Way High School and the Vancouver region. This is the desire of my heart. ”
Mrs. Hillstrom earned a BS in Social Science with a concentration in Education, an MEd in Curriculum and Instruction, and an MS in Educational Administration and Leadership. She has taught university courses in contemporary issues in education, assessment and evaluation, classroom management, and mathematics education. Allison and her husband Scott have been married for almost 28 years and have two adult children, Shawn and Joel.
