School Notes

  • Our program uses research-based multisensory structured language methodology. During the academic year, students attend Hill for 3 hours and attend a base school for the remainder of the school day. We also offer a 5-week summer program as well as community outreach and tutoring programs. Our most important goal is to improve reading, writing, and math skills of struggling learners. In addition, we offer workshops for parents and educators. Our tutoring services in reading, writing, and math as well as executive functioning coaching, and keyboarding continue to be well received.
