What are faculty are saying…

“What do you like best about The Hillside School?”

“Hillside is not just a school — it is a family.”

“Being able to teach the way we were trained using integration across curricula, individualization, extensions and student support.”

“The opportunity to work with students in small-group settings.  Our unique structure and approach allows up to get to know each student as a unique individual.”

“Having the opportunity to collaborate with so many dedicated teachers and enthusiastic students!”

“The small size of the school allows me to help students act more confident in our world; by acquiring good movement skills they can use throughout their lifetime.”

“The ability to create lessons and activities that apply directly to students’ needs.  The children are so appreciative and their sucess is incredible.  It puts a smile on everyone’s face!”

“Making a real difference for my students”
