Hillsborough Academy of Math & Science is A Proud
Member of the Charter School Associates' Family of Schools

Meet Our Principal

My name is Brittany Deen and I am excited to introduce myself as the principal of Hillsborough Academy of Math and Science.  It is my privilege and honor to be a part of HAMS and the Charter School Associates team which is vastly known for its dedication to excellence, but more importantly, to children. 

I graduated from the University of Central Florida with my degree in Elementary Education and later pursued my degree in Educational Leadership from National Louis University. This is my twenty-eighth year in education and I believe all of the positions I have held have shaped me into the educator I am today from teacher to administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. 

I believe my job as a school leader is not only to manage the school but to celebrate the success of children and the progress they make in their educational career, no matter how large or small.  Encouraging my students every day and letting them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community is extremely important.  My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Every student is worthy of my best effort.


The mission of Hillsborough Academy of Math & Science is to provide a quality and challenging academic education in an environment that allows for the expression of ideas, partnerships for  parental involvement in all aspects of the life of the school, private school atmosphere, school-wide disciplinary expectations, and standards designed to foster academic, social and emotional growth.
