Hillside Academy is an independent school that provides a safe, experiential, and integrated learning environment attentive to individual needs. Hillside's environment empowers children to maximize their potential and to find their places as lifelong learners in school and society. Our school welcomes and encourages the presence and participation of parents in the creation of an active, inventive and congenial environment. Children have the potential and the possibilities; Hillside Academy provides the opportunities, expectation, and support. Students are challenged to meet their academic potential while developing personal responsibility, self-discipline, empathy, integrity, and respect for others. Our challenge is to determine how each child learns best. Our goal is to educate meaningfully while nurturing and building trust. Our success is measured by whether, in partnership with parents, we've made the most of an individual's potential based on strengths and gifts. Academic skills and content are taught together, not as fragmented lessons. Basic skills are learned in context with intellectual development in three areas:
* Tools for Learning (Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, And Organization And Study Skills)
This interdisciplinary curriculum represents the inter-relatedness of subject matter and skills.
