How are goals met?
Hillside is an intentionally small Christian school which offers a unique and effective "one-room schoolhouse" type of education in a family atmosphere. Individual children's learning styles and rates are naturally accommodated through multi-grade classrooms and mature Christian educators. High academic standards are balanced with plenty of time for creative play and exploration so that children can enjoy childhood, not be hurried through it.
Building children's character and faith take priority at Hillside Christian School. This occurs both inside and outside the classroom. While students work hard in class they are given ample opportunity to play outdoors in our wide open spaces. Playground facilities, supervised games and free time allow students to relax and enjoy childhood. During the school year students participate in community outreach projects. Whether delivering Valentines at a nursing home or picking up trash in a park, serving Christ is the focus.
