Junior: I currently attend school here and enjoy it. The standards for students are high at AMSA , and the academics are especially rigorous. Though well known for STEM, the humanities are also great with excellent teachers. Following many years of turnover, the current administration is wonderful! School spirit is a little low, I would say partly due to a lack of a traditional football team and the school's emphasis on academics. However, many students participate in sports here as well as various clubs/activities.

Senior: Most of the classes I've taken here have been beneficial to me, or at the very least still peaked my interest. There are also courses offered at varying degrees of difficulty, meaning I was able to take a few APs which I feel has better prepared me for college. Just like any school, some teachers are extremely supportive and personable, and others seem like they are just waiting to retire.
Also, I feel that students need to be allowed more freedom. High school is supposed to be preparing us for the real world, so why are we coddled so much?! Overall, there are many great clubs to join, a diverse group of people to meet, and exciting sports games to watch/part-take in. High school has been a very enjoyable experience for me and I credit that to the people at MHS.

Parent: 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.
