Hillside Middle School 5

I've had four children go to Hillside over the past six years. It is the best Middle School in Manchester with a great principal and assistants. The PTO is amazing. Hillside has great community support. If you want a safe, well-run school with a dedicated staff then Hillside is the place for you!

Mr Pat O'Neill is the epitome of a great teacher. He has devoted his life to the well-being and education of Manchester's kids.

The school has realistic expectations of its diverse population of students. The graduating classes from Hillside in the past ten years have included children who went on to Harvard, Columbia, MIT, WPI, Northeastern, Syracuse, BU, BC and Tufts.

Hillside has a strong student council as well as a wonderful Builders Club. This club is sponsored by Kiwanis International and is the junior version of Key Club at Central HS. This club raises money for charities and works with many non-profits in the city.

Hillside Middle School parent support. The majority of teachers are incredible. Lacking is the superintendent, school board and mayor by not supporting curriculum and not investing in educational advancements.

Please be advised - The school does not know how to support victims of bullying. Mr. B. McCafferty suspended a student who was a victim. No stars for him.

hated it wish i did not have to subject my child to this place i attended 20 years ago and i can only imagine it is getting worse not better lets face it it is an inner city middle school and the crime rate is higher in the inner city so guess what the schools will have more problems than say one that is outside of the city like mclaughlin and i live in the inner city have all my life so im not a snob its just the facts its not every teacher not every student but it is the average for any school located in an inner city and hillside is smack in the middle unfortunatly

I never liked this school. I don't think it prepares students for High school. Everything about this school seems to be going down hill.
