The Hillside School's Full Profile



The Hillside School says

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 - ADD/ADHD

Mission Statement

The mission of The Hillside School is to maximize the potential of the child with learning disabilities through excellence in education.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
