About Our School
The staff at Menta Academy Hillside is dedicated to ensuring that each child reaches their full potential in becoming 3-C Ready: College Ready, Career Ready, and Citizenship Ready. Our classrooms meet the needs of diverse learners by focusing on utilizing an Optimal Learning Environment which promotes engaged learning.
Our motto is “We are Better Together!” Our team of highly educated teachers and administrative staff work diligently to ensure that each student is given individualized educational support and a consistent therapeutic learning environment.
The Menta Academy Hillside team works with a “better together” mindset and practice. We put a focus on community outreach, collaboration, and partnership to provide various opportunities for our students to succeed. This is done through college visits, career exploration events, community service opportunities, and outside speakers and presentations.
Menta Academy Hillside staff uses Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) and Restorative Practices to reinforce positive and appropriate behaviors and relationships in our students. We work with students to help determine motivators to reward encouraged behavior in and out of school.
