Portrait of a Hillside Graduate

Hillside has a transformative effect on students. They become:

  • Self-aware and confident self-advocates who relentlessly request the tools they need so they can continue to learn independently and reach their potential
  • Creative and flexible problem-solvers
  • Resilient and enthusiastic learners
  • Well-educated
  • Risk-takers with an “I-can-do-it” attitude
  • Empathetic and thoughtful community members
  • Good friends
  • Happy with themselves

“Hillside School is a wonderful place for children who learn differently. They have a great culture of kindness and support that is just as important as the tailored curriculum. We cannot recommend it highly enough for families looking for a place where their child will not be lost in the shuffle.”
