Hillside Community

The Hillside School is an extended family of students, alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, administration, and the Board of Trustees, as well as professional and community supporters who advocate and promote our mission. We pride ourselves on creating a caring and inclusive environment where our students can thrive because they feel safe, supported, and valued.

For many of the children and their families, arriving at Hillside produces a sense of relief because they are finally in a place with like-minded students who want to learn and experience success and are, at last, being taught in a way that speaks to them.

Hillside Families

A Hillside family includes the parents, siblings, and grandparents. We encourage family members to be actively involved. Parents receive daily communication from their children’s teachers through our Parent Portal and are welcome to visit the school. We also support families through our HELPS Program which is run by our guidance team.

The Hillside School is a lifelong resource for our families.


Over the last 38 years, our alumni have been transformed by their time at Hillside. They credit the educational foundation they built here for helping them find success in future academic settings and their careers.

Many attended colleges and universities like DeSales University, Georgetown University, Juliard School, Kutztown University, Lehigh University, Moravian College, Syracuse University and Temple University.

Faculty and Staff

Our expert teachers and professional staff are the heart of The Hillside School. Each member of our team has specialized skills, empathy, and priorities that help create a one-of-a-kind learning experience for each child.
