Hillside is a half-day program that focuses on individualized instruction of reading, written language, and math while allowing students to attend their traditional school for the remainder of the day.

In a small classroom setting of four students, teachers personalize instruction for each student’s unique learning style, level, and pace. This approach reduces academic anxiety while creating comradery among peers who are similar learners. Hillside students’ progress is not only measured in academic growth, but also in their transformation into confident, capable learners.
