4/11/2010studentI went to the Hill Center for 2 years-2007-2008, then 2008-2009. I had a great time going there and it helped me so much! We had a great carpool and the teachers are all so nice and are there if you need help with anything.
11/17/2009parentHi--My children each attended Hill for two years. Their lives are completely different because of those two years. I would also like to address what an earlier review said about child's emotional needs not being met because he was not put in a class with his same age peers. Since it is a remediation school there will be subjects where kids need more remediation--and some kids need less. One of my children was in a group of younger kids for math and older kids for reading and writing. My other child was the exact opposite--younger kids for reading and writing and older kids for math. It would not benefit a child to put him in a class of his same age peers if he could not perform at that level. The Hill Center places children according to the level they can work at--it's nothing personal.
4/24/2009parentOur son attended Hill Center and we have been unhappy. They seem to have developed a methodology that does help children with learning differences, however they were very unresponsive to our son's emotional needs. He was placed with students that were functioning 2 to 3 years behind our son socially and couldn't understand my son's frustration and refused to do anything about it. My advice is to hire a good tutor and save yourself alot of money
2/24/2006parentOur son attended Hill Center 10 years ago and was working at grade level but with great difficulty. He recently was named by the Department of Education as a nominee for a Presidential Scholar award on the basis of his performance on the SATs. Hill was instrumental in helping him realize his potential. I would encourage everyone with children who suffer from learning abilities to send their kids there if they can.
4/1/2004parentExcellent individual instruction from loving teachers. If your child is dyslexic or has learning difficulties this is the school. My son attended a private school that supposedly had a good student teacher ratio, but he never got the personalized instruction that he needed. The best private schools can't do what the Hill Center does. The one to three ratio makes all the difference. If you have to choose between a private school and the Hill Center, choose the Hill Center. You can home school your child or send him to a public school in the afternoon, but don't make the mistake of believing that a private school can give your child what the Hill Center can. There is no comparison.
3/28/2004parentExcellent school. The teachers are caring and supportive and help non-traditional learners to feel successful. It is expensive but worth it.
