About Our School

At Menta Academy Hillside, we hold the key to unlocking the vast potential within every student through a dedicated, holistic approach to education. Our mission is grounded in the ‘3-C Ready’ philosophy, ensuring that every learner is prepared for the challenges of College, Career, and Citizenship. This isn’t just a slogan; it’s a commitment that permeates every aspect of our learning environment. We recognize that each child’s journey is unique, which is why our educational services are tailored to the developmental and individual learning needs of each student.

The classrooms at Menta Academy Hillside are vibrant hubs of activity and engagement. Our educators curate a dynamic curriculum that transcends traditional learning, fostering critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration. This approach ensures that students are not only absorbing knowledge but are also applying it in real-world contexts, thus becoming active participants in their educational journey. With a focus on continuous growth, our students are encouraged to strive for academic excellence and behavioral success, underpinned by consistent support and recognition of their achievements.


At Hillside, 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.  With our “better together” mindset, 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.
