  • My daughter has been going to Hillside Montessori since she was 4 months old. She absolutely loves it there. The staff is great, and I never have to worry about her during the day. I know that she is well taken care of. My daughter is still in the baby room and the teachers are phenomenal. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

  • My son has been going to this school/day care since he was 9 months old and he is now 3 and 1/2 years old. All the teachers at this school are very professional and at the same time very caring towards the kids. They are more than willing to go the extra mile to teach kids the right thing. The infant room, the toddler room and the preschool program - all three have been just fantastic for my son's overall development.The fees are also reasonable. I would very strongly recommend this school to everybody.

  • Hillside Montessori is an old building, so I guess that is why they are able to get a better price than other schools. My son went there for 2 years, and after I moved away from the area, I had to change his school. I guess I am spoiled by how great Hilside is, great teaching kids manners and a great place for learning. When my son went to the other school, they thought he was some type of genius, he was so ahead than the other kids. I only gave 4 out of 5 starts, because the building is not in the best shape it could be. But I am happy about the academics.

  • My daughter went to Hillside for 3 years and she loved it, and so did we. Ms. Agantha is a very special person...loving and supportive in so many ways, and very aware of environmental issues, the importance of a healthy diet, and other topics important to children today. Our daughter has very fond memories of the school, and often wishes she were still there. The education was excellent too...so organized and well balanced, and such a good method of teaching reading. Our daughter is in 2nd grade now and reads at a 5th grade level due to her exceptional start at Hillside.

  • The teachers in the school are friendly, kind and committed to take care the children. Although the facility is a little old, there are a big front yard for the kids to play and plant plants in the back yard. My daughter has been in the school for almost 3 years until we have to move. She enjoys the school and wants to move the school with her.

  • This school has been wonderful for my 5 year old. He is excited to go to school everyday, which is quite a change from his last preschool experience, where he cried every day and didnt want to go back. Now he is excitited to show me his daily classwork and newest activity he is learning to master. The teachers here are exceptional and the learning environment is second to none. The children go on nature walks and get plenty of playtime outdoors. I coulndn't be happier and I think my son feels the same way
