Hillside School

Current News

Hillside's renowned resilience was on display as the School opened Wed., Jan. 28th at 10 a.m. - one of only six local schools to do so during one of the largest storms ever around Greater Boston. Headmaster Beecher thanked the students for their positive attitude and willingness to pitch in as well over two feet of snow fell on campus; he specifically commended the contributions of Hillside's crack Buildings and Grounds team for meeting their ambitious goal. Erik Bentley, who lives on campus, worked for hours during the blizzard Tuesday, followed by a long Wednesday of clearing, shoveling and more by B & G director Pete McKenna and teammates Steve Carleton and Cisco Elias. Great work, Hillside! Read more and see some pics - click above!
On Wednesday January 21st, Hillside's Varsity hockey team played host to Cardigan Mountain School, a fellow junior boarding school and strong hockey competitor. The visitors were eager to avenge last year's defeat, but Ryan Lovett put Hillside on the board first, and both teams continued to battle hard throughout the rest of the period. The game went back and forth with some strong offensive forays and tough D, but in the end, Hillside's additional goals from Patrick Robles (1) and Andranik Armstrong (2), plus strong goaltending from Carson McKinnon, led to a 4-0 victory.

Students interested in how government works and how legislation is developed and approved can now participate in the process, as Hillside has created a team that will attend a Model Congress program at Packer Collegiate Institute in New York. A committee, can create a legislative proposal and then present it before a group of peers at Packer in May, where the proposed bill is discussed, debated and ultimately voted on, with select proposals moving out of committee and to a vote before the entire student-run Congress. Proposals that the Hillside teams are considering include transit programs, a drive to eliminate pennies, gun control, and changing school summer breaks.‚Äč
