    Teacher to student ratios are great. Teachers are patient and fun. Wouldn't have my children at any other shool in Needham!

    Hillside is an excellent school with solid academics and a wonderful faculty and administration. The relatively young principle has created innovative programs including a partnership with Lesley University that brings in education majors as assistants and a partnership with SmartBoard that provides several of their best in return for being a demonstration school. The faculty has extremely low turnover despite a highly competitive job market in the surrounding towns.
