  • The Hiland Hall School creates a learning environment where students of different ages can interact with each other.
  • We support what's known as an "emergent curriculum"; the curriculum emerges from the thoughts, interests and needs of the students.
  • Our methods are founded upon practice developed over the last thirty years by other progressive institutions such as the Prospect School and Bank Street School.
  • Our emphasis is on "learning to learn"; we encourage active thinking, problem-solving, and group interaction.
  • Children have regular individual conferences and lessons with their teachers, emphasizing skill development and expansion of thinking.
  • This is a fun place -- but it has a serious mission.
  • A school assists in the unfolding of individual potential. We are privileged to be a very important part of a young person's life -- and prepared for every step.
