Hilldale has a wonderful small community feel with a strong focus on academic advancement. The parents and teachers are close knit and the children watch over one another.
Hilldale is an oasis in the world of too-busy teachers and parents on the go. We as a family have found a diverse community of friendship, family, and mentors at Hilldale. What school offers that? My son, Jakob, who is a third grader, says Hilldale is a fun, nice place where you meet good friends and get a good education! Know any 3rd graders saying that? I challenge any school out there to offer the skills, talent, sense of community and duty that Hilldale offers my children. My daughter (4yrs) recently enrolled into the Pre-K program. Daily she is excited about going to school where she has learned about science, reading and increased her artistic abilities. She is definitely ready for kindergarten. After school workshops, swimming, great education all in a beautiful country setting.
We can't say enough good things about the Hilldale School. Our son is a first-grader at Hilldale and attended kindergarten at Hilldale, as well as the summer camp. When we go to school, it feels like coming home. We truly feel that the Hilldale community is a second family. The Hilldale School challenges the students with a rigorous academic curriculum and our son is learning so much - far beyond the traditional first-grade skills. The first-grade curriculum involves lots of reading and writing, spelling and math, as well as social studies and science. The students in his class truly enjoy working hard and we know that whenschool is in session he is working -- and not being 'babysat,' as is the case in many other schools.
A gem of a school. Small, but very challenging and enriching. Superb teachers and very committed Principal. Excellent after school program which is included in the tuition. Fantastic value form money. A real hidden treasure.
Hilldale School is one if not the best schools in the area. The number of students vs. teachers is more like a homeschooling with the benefit of social interaction with other students of different ages. My child excels in all parts of academic needs due to the small class; teachers spending time to met her needs, constantly challeging her, testing her ability to succeed. We have been a part of the school for a number of years, and we have seen the changes that the new owner made to upgrade, meeting the demands, educational expectations and students rises to the challenge. Critical thinking and information technology have been incorporated with the curriculum which will help the students in their future academic and real life experiences.
Both my children have gone to Hilldale School since they were Kindergarten. Hilldale is a small school located near the city where it provides a conducive natural setting for learning. Currently, the curriculum is well rounded and is carefully balanced to challenge our 8th grader child and meet the requirements needed before her high school years. The staff cohesively work together and shows great interest and are skillful in providing attention as needed. Currently, our child feels comfortable and encouraged to learn and there is no better way to describe the school than that.
