Hillside Christian School
Hillside is an intentionally small Christian school which offers a unique and effective 'one-room schoolhouse' type of education in a family atmosphere.
Individual children's learning styles and rates are naturally accommodated through multi-grade classrooms and mature Christian educators.
High academic standards are balanced with plenty of time for creative play and exploration so that children can enjoy childhood, not be hurried through it.
