Focused on Smart Solutions

Effective Monday, March 16, we are shifting to remote instruction for two weeks, at a minimum. Though there are no reported cases of COVID-19 reported at our school or immediate community, we feel it is our responsibility to be part of the solution of keeping our Hillside family and greater community safe.

Please note the administration is still able to answer questions and concerns. 

We will continue to monitor messages to our school site and continue to take 

Summer School registrations and any general inquiries. 

Call or email us and we will get back to you in a timely manner.

Stay safe everyone!    or   (818) 790 – 3044

The Hillside School offers a complete, accredited and college-focused 4-year high school program, as well as a complete and accredited 3-year middle school program for students who thrive in a personalized learning environment. We serve students from all over the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys. We have students from La Cañada, La Crescenta, Pasadena, Altadena, Arcadia, Glendale, Burbank, Eagle Rock, Sunland/Tujunga, Sun Valley and more!

The Hillside School offers challenging classwork for students with motivational and educational disabilities. Our small class sizes and focused teaching techniques permit us to motivate students beyond their expectations. Students are prepared for college or employment after graduation.

The Hillside School and Learning Center utilizes four proven scholastic techniques to reach and empower students to achieve beyond their challenges. Small class sizes, one-to-one teaching, positive reinforcement and psychological services work together to help and motivate students who have disengaged from learning–whether due to psychological or educational factors. Some students may be dealing with ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, processing disorders or known as twice-exceptional students. Many students have experienced special education in their school and the needs were not fully met. Some students have attended non-traditional settings such as homeschooling or independent study and are ready for a change.

Upcoming Events

The mission of The Hillside School and Learning Center is to provide an intimate environment in which students are guided by a committed faculty and staff to obtain the academic knowledge, the life skills, and the self-confidence to pursue a post-high school education, vocational education or meaningful employment to be productive and successful citizens.

The Hillside School offers full time, dual enrollment & night school options in several core subjects. All students benefit from our unique combination of small class size, commitment to individualized learning, knowledgeable faculty, advanced educational technology, and strong supportive services including counseling and tutoring.
