Hillside is invested in cultivating the gifts of our students so they can share them with the world in meaningful ways. The development of creative, compassionate, critically thinking individuals is the highest goal of our school. Our students not only learn to think critically and write effectively, but also gain a sense of confidence in their ability to be unapologetically creative.
We provide students, grades 5 -12, a rigorous academic and arts program shaped by creative and ethical values that allow each student to fulfill their unique potential. Whether tackling a difficult physics problem, parsing a monologue from Shakespeare, or producing a stop action animation, our students balance their hard work with a sense of humor and joyful curiosity. They write with fluency, power and imagination.
Our graduates consistently win awards, earn high scores on SATs, and are accepted into top tier colleges and universities.
