As a parent of two teen girls at this school, I've been happy with the quality of education they have received. Hillside's small school atmosphere has been a great transition for us....the teaching staff are very engaged with the kids and I feel like my children are not just another number.
I think people over-rate the schools their children belong to. Hillside is probably about average by most measures for this area. There are a few outstanding teachers, many average teachers and a few who probably should be doing something else.
