School Notes

  • Hillside School offers a unique educational model allowing students to develop essential academic skills while also attending their regular school part-time.  Hillside School uses the most current research-based instructional methods from both the educational and neuroscience fields.  Our students not only make significant academic growth but they also develop skills and strategies related to their own learning which increase their success in other academic settings.
