Hear it from our parents!

“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.”

“For students and parents considering Hillside, I believe that it’s a life changing school. Within the first week of being at Hillside you will see a change in your child’s character. 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. ”
