Parent Bobbi Hadersbeck's story

Academics: The transition from 8th grade to 9th grade is often difficult for most students. A new school, new teachers, and new classmates can be overwhelming. The academic pace quickens and, if you believed the rumors about Hillside being filled with gang-bangers, thieves, teen parents, and dumb jocks, making new friends could seem a bit intimidating. Having heard all of these rumors, I admit that I was a bit skeptical about sending my child to any part of Hillside.

These are highly valued skill sets that are easily translated outside of the classroom.

Above all, the setting is most conducive to learning.
