Hillside School

Drumming, African culture, dance and art were all the rage as students and faculty were treated to both education and performance from African Arts in Education. Each class was given hands-on drumming lessons followed by conversations about life and culture in West Africa. The day's highlight was a stunning performance, with music history lessons weaved in, by the five-member Crocodile River Music group.

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!
