You will really not find a wackier and more diverse and tightly knit family anywhere else in reality. We all have incredible, inspiring and interesting talents. You name it we got it. We have athletes, artists, singers and maybe even a future astronaut….[W]e are a family. We are bound together with the strongest forces there are – trust, respect and love.

The division between Intermediate and Secondary Levels highlights the shift towards more intensive study. While language and math are taught in traditional fifty-minute morning classes, other required courses and electives are presented in three hour “blocks” which provide immersion in the subjects. The block system, pioneered by Hillside, avoids the fragmentation inherent in attempting to study seven subjects a day.
