I recently learned that Hillside was rated one of the top ten private schools in Washington State for 2015 by niche.com, based on SAT test scores, the rigor of the colleges graduates attend and student feedback about Hillside's program. This news is not surprising. This is a rare school where the teachers and administrators teach by example and embody what they value -- kindness, genuine curiosity and passion in their subject area, a strong work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile -- be it on the behalf of a student or a coworker. Students follow suit, and In this atmosphere of trust, they relax, focus, grow and excel. This is a great school and these are lucky kids.
