Hillside School: Located in Marlborough, Middlesex County, MA, 30 miles west of Boston, 70 miles from Hartford, and 3½ hours from New York City, Hillside School is an independent boarding and day school for boys Grades 5-9.
Boarding: Hillside is blessed with six housing units to which the boys are assigned based on age and grade. The houses are staffed by Hillside faculty members. The house parents are supervised by the Dean of Residential Life.
House parents get their young charges up in the morning, making sure they are dressed properly and fulfill their responsibilities in the house. As in any good family environment, manners and hygiene receive particular attention. Boys are expected to keep their personal space and the common areas clean and tidy, learning to do chores because they need to be done, not because they have to do them. In the evening, house parents sometimes provide freshly baked cookies - a much anticipated treat.
Student proctors play a vital role in the houses, helping new boys through bouts of homesickness, and generally assisting the house parents in interacting with the students.
