Hillside provides a challenging, college preparatory program centered on recognizing, appreciating, and sharing gifts with one another. We encourage students as they:
- Hone their critical thinking abilities, develop academic skills, and strive for excellence
- Risk mistakes – since errors are stepping stones to creativity and learning
- Participate in a nurturing, respectful, supportive environment
- Explore feelings and choose responsible actions
- Discover their own gifts and celebrate the gifts of others
We believe that the development of creative, compassionate, critically thinking individuals is the highest goal of the school. Youth need a central set of ethical values to give them the strength to be unique. Hillside integrates these values within an inspiring core curriculum.
