The Hillside School is the leading independent day school in the Lehigh Valley that is dedicated to educating children who have been diagnosed with language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Our small class size (8:1 ratio) allows teachers to focus on the individual, academic, personal, and social success of elementary and middle school students in grades K-8 who benefit from a structured, supportive, and multi-sensory learning environment.
A collaboration of professional staff, knowledgeable and experienced teachers, caring parents, and energetic students make The Hillside School an ideal place for learning.
Our students typically struggle to learn in a traditional school environment. They have average to above-average cognitive ability, yet display weaknesses in one or more of the following areas:
- Reading, writing, spelling, and math
- Executive functions
- Receptive and expressive language
- Visual and auditory processing disorders
