Welcome to Hillside Traditional Academy.
Traditional education stresses personal achievement and an environment that is conducive to learning. This is achieved through structured, teacher-directed approaches to instruction with a focus on building foundational knowledge. Literacy and numeracy skills are regularly assessed. In addition, homework, to reinforce learning, is expected to be completed.
A strong partnership between the home and school will make a great difference in your child's education and success at Hillside Traditional Academy. All students learn best when everyone is working together to support each other. Meaningful involvement from family and support from the community are essential to helping students achieve. This partnership is a sure sign that the school and home both encourage the very best in students and help them realize their fullest potential.
Hillside Traditional Academy values respect, personal responsibility, and empathy. It is our goal to foster these values, in a traditional environment, allowing our students to maximize their potential. Throughout the upcoming school year, staff, students, and parents will be challenged to THRIVE. We look forward to encouraging everyone to: Try Your Best, Be Healthy, Relate Well to Each Other, Get Involved, Live your Values, and Enjoy Positive Emotions. We endeavour to partner with parents and students to not just survive but THRIVE.
It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Thank you for your commitment to Hillside Traditional Academy.
Sincerely, Lisa Clarke Ed.D.
