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!
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.
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 love this middle school! Obviously your not going to like all of the teachers, you wont anywhere, at any school. But it's so not like a cattle drive! :( . it's like any other school, your bound to have drama problems, fights, everything.
Parents and Teachers have been brought together within the last year to improve the school goals. Teachers have all completed online curriculum mapping to ensure better communication on the classroom teaching with the community.
This school is like a cattle drive, much like all of the middle schools in Manchester. As long as your child has a pulse and doesn't cause any trouble they will pass all of their classes with no effort...Although there were a few good teachers when my daughter attended, the majority were sub-standard. The Principal should've been replaced years ago along with the rest of the Administrators there. The only bright spot was when Mrs. Rinker was there, a truly amazing woman... may she rest in peace
