School Reviews

5  5/21/2012
I graduated from Hillside Middle School in 1999, when it was still known as, "Hillside Intermediate School." At the time, it contained Grades 4-5, and was very strong on academics. Besides having a 5th Grade teacher who assigned a workload more fitting for high school, it was a pleasant experience being there as a student. As a teacher now, I would strongly recommend Hillside to both prospective students and teachers alike!
