Hillside School

Current News

Every year the 7th Graders embark on a three day team-building journey at Chewonki in Maine. The boys set up their campsites and manage their food and supplies. They are also presented with many other challenges to help strengthen their trust with each other, including the barn climb, where students help each other complete various climbs they could not accomplish on their own.
Hillside's strong tradition of doing good while educating the boys through unique conservation programs has continues with our participation in the Blanding's Turtle project. Emilie Schuler of the Grassroots Wildlife Conservation group kicked off "Headstart" for Blanding's Turtles in partnership with Hillside. The program will help this endangered species thrive while teaching the fifth and sixth-grade boys about field conservation and how to make a real-world contribution to society. The kickoff meeting ended with a bang as the boys met their two new turtles, Squirtle and Franklin!
The new Hillside Culture Connection offers the boys access to cultural events, natural wonders and unique exhibits around New England. The first trip on September 21st was to Andres Art Institute at Big Bear Mountain in NH. The boys hiked and saw unique sculptures created by leading artists, on the mountains - and had the chance to meet two of the artists in their studios!
