RobertNichols: Hillside elementary is a very small school with less than 50 students and small teaching staff and what a difference this makes! The staff is all very friendly and there is a very good student-teacher mix ensuring all the students receive attention. They put on parent ‘work shops’ to assist the parents in teaching concepts that is age appropriate to their child. My two oldest children attended this school and my youngest is now attending and very much enjoyed the small rural country style school and friendly staff. I give them 5 Stars!
