Thanks to the on-campus working farm and greenhouse, Hillside students develop a keen awareness of and appreciation for the importance of protecting our natural environment.
Through activities central to farming and sustainability such as collection eggs, watering cows, planting crops and working in the greenhouse students experience the confidence building benefits of working in teams to set goals and tackle problems. The integration of the Hillside farm into each grade level's core curriculum, allows all students the opportunity to learn their subjects in the context of this unique campus resource.
