Welcome to The Hillside School

The Hillside School is an independent school for students in kindergarten through 8th grade with language-based learning disabilities/differences, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, as well as associated disorders that affect learning, i.e. auditory, visual, and sensory processing disorders, working memory deficits, ADHD, executive functioning deficits, and nonverbal learning disabilities.

A Hillside education is specifically designed to meet the needs of students who struggled to find success in traditional settings. We invite you to explore the opportunities that await!

Bright students may struggle in traditional school environments.  For over 30 years, The Hillside School has been equipping students with tools and strategies to help reach their full potential.
