  • My daughter has attended HillSprings for the past two years and it was the best choice we ever made for her. Going through the public school system was a struggle and very harmful to her self esteem. The staff at HillSprings has taught my daughter that Learning Differences are to be celebrated. They have also helped her to develop her love for learning once again.
    HillSprings is also a great resource for parents and families who struggle with learning differences. I (we) feel very fortunate to of found HillSprings Learning Center for our daughter.

  • Amazing staff, great alternative learning methods, small class rooms with one on one interaction, are just a few of the many things that make this school so amazing!

    The self esteem building and nuturing that the teachers offer the children goes way beyond the school setting .

    This school is a blessing for anyone with learning disabilities.

  • I see and hear how HillSprings is helping children with learning differences become more confident. I am truly touched by the passion and heart the teachers, director, and parents have for this very special school.

    I encourage everyone that has a child or knows someone with children with learning difficulties to explore the HillSprings methodology.

    Lastly, if you are a teacher that feels we are not providing our special children with the tools they need to be successful, then by all means, come and find out what HillSprings is all about.

  • This school is amazing. The teachers know more about children with learning challanges then any teachers I have met. For the first time, I didn't have to spend the year explaining or advocating for my child with ADHD. For once the teacher are the experts. My son is more confident, polite and happier then any school he has tried. This was his third school that we entered at grade 5. He has become kinder and more acceptant of himself.

  • The leadership of this school is focused on the student and what is best for him/her.

    The teacher involvement is amazing. My student feels very safe and comfortable due to the teachers involvement not only in their academics, but their life too.

    I would highly recommend The HillSprings Learning Center to ANYONE that has a child with learning differences.
