In the past, she would become easily stuck when working on a project or assignment but now at Hillside has learned ways to help herself out and work through things on her own. She has been taught little ways to help with things like writing a paragraph or a story, public speaking, reading and (what she has always struggled with) remember what she is reading.
Our son did a complete 180 degree turn – he got his self-confidence back immediately and gained most of the educational losses that he was experiencing at his previous school (which was also a very good institution, just not equipped to deal with his particular learning disability).
Hillside gave me the confidence and independence to pursue my educational goals and to work towards my dream of becoming a veterinarian.
None of my success would have been possible without The Hillside School. I am not writing to brag but rather to show you the impact that you had on a small child in 1991. You gave me a fighting chance and I thank you for that.
I believe this is a life changing school. Within the first week of being at Hillside you will see a change in your children. They will want to learn, and most of all they will want to go to school. Hillside gives students the power to speak out and be confident about learning. I am so glad that I spent three years at Hillside and feel like it will always make a difference in my life.

They will want to learn and most of all they will want to go to school. Hillside gives students the power to speak out and be confident about learning. I am so glad that I spent three years at Hillside and feel like it will always make a difference in my life.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than to see your child struggle with anything, including learning. We have seen an increase in confidence and a decrease in resistance regarding learning in such a short time. There is such relief and joy knowing that this is just the beginning of many successes for Olivia.
