Hillier has been a life saver for my daughter, who has dyslexia. After 2 1/2 years, she is reading above grade level and is ready to be mainstreamed back to a regular school.

Hillier has been the only school which has really helped my child with his Dyslexia. My son gained nothing in public school and I was at my wits end. It still takes a great deal of effort (this is not an easy out) but Hillier makes it possible for us to make progress in reading and learning. Hillier has also been a key element in teaching my son that Dyslexia doesn't mean your dumb, your just different. Many brilliant people from our past have been dyslexic. This is a valuable tool to help you ensure success with your child. This school is specific in that it only teaches ADD and Dyslexic children so all of the students are peers and have the same disability. He has found a place to fit in, and friends that share his challenges.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
