We will continue to offer an Integrated Preschool (IPS) Program for the 2021-2022 school year at Hillside School. The IPS Program incorporates the education of general education preschoolers with special needs. We will offer one program for 3-year-olds (9:00AM – 11:30AM), and one for 4-year-olds (12:30PM – 3:00PM). 


    In the event the District does not have enough “seats” for all of the prospective children, we will use a lottery system.  Lottery applications for general education students are now available on the Hillside School website under Preschool Lottery on the right side of our homepage, and will be accepted until 3:00PM, Wednesday, March 17, 2021. All applications must be complete in order to participate in the lottery. 


    In order to be accepted in the IPS programs, children must be 3 or 4 years old by October 1, 2021, and must be bathroom trained. There is an annual tuition payment of $4,000 for accepted general education students. 


    Students with special needs are placed in the program through an evaluation process performed by the Department of Special Services.


    Additional information about the Preschool program is available in our newsletter.
