School Notes:

  • Hillbrook educates the whole child. Through a challenging and differentiated curriculum, outstanding teachers prepare children to make choices that stimulate and stretch them intellectually, aesthetically, and physically. Students take on the process of their own learning to question, discover, and think independently. They build intellectual curiosity, interpersonal and critical thinking skills, technological expertise, and self-confidence. Hillbrook educates a diverse and inclusive student body, respecting all members and honoring the individual character and spirit of each child. In a safe, nurturing environment, we provide an experience for children that reflects the breadth and depth within the world and prepares children for life's possibilities.
