Our family wishes to pay the highest of compliments to Hillside School for the management of its Spring ’20 Trimester! When academic classes at Hillside resumed online on Monday, March 30, Hillside’s faculty performed with excellence, as if the school had been operating with remote learning for quite some time. Our family was incredibly impressed with the overall effectiveness of Hillside’s remote learning program. And the continuity of curriculum throughout the Spring ’20 trimester exceeded our expectations!

Hillside School set a date & time to launch remote learning of Monday, March 30, 2020 at 8:15 am to noon. That morning, his screen lit up with images and familiar faces at precisely 8:15 am.

Then, from Monday, March 30 through the last week of May, the consistency of his school day was just what we hoped for. Academic lessons began right at 8:15 am and continued up until noon. Additionally, he received three to four meaningful homework assignments each day.

My son just completed sixth grade at Hillside and we couldn’t be happier with his experience. The switch to online learning was seamless and attention to individualized learning was impressive. I heard many disappointing tales from parents whose kids were at others schools lacking inspiration and organization. We are indebted to the faculty and administration for providing the best possible experience during these difficult days during COVID-19. I should also mention the food service was changed to Sage and the boys couldn’t believe the difference in being served fresh delicious meals. Farm to table! Many things served came directly from Hillside’s Farm!
We’ve had an amazing first year at Hillside and we feel so lucky to be part of the community. The teachers are just outstanding and make an incredible effort to connect with our child and our family. They are responsive and routinely make themselves available. We feel very supported and cared for by all of our child’s teachers and they are incredibly dedicated to the work. They understand the whole child and appreciate the child’s strengths as well as their vulnerabilities in order to promote growth. Their dedication and enthusiasm inspire the children. All the classrooms are run extremely well and classwork is engaging and meaningful. The homework amount is within the recommended guidelines and furthers the learning process. The administration communicates very well with families. Although in person learning is preferable, the remote learning program was excellent. The children continued to progress and remained engaged in the curriculums that were adapted for remote learning.
