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.
