As children mature, their social and emotional needs change as well. Hillbrook helps students navigate this period of growth by building a community that emphasizes kindness and mutual respect. Daily Advisory meetings provide space for students to build community, and practice empathy, cooperation and communication skills.
Reaching Beyond Hillbrook
Our Middle School students are encouraged to live our school’s vision and reach beyond the Hillbrook campus to make a difference in the world. Through specially designed programs like our weekly “Reach Beyond Block” activities, annual “Reach Beyond Week,” and 8th grade Capstone Project, Hillbrook students have regular opportunities to engage, explore and problem-solve with the community beyond campus. Whether restoring creek habitats, working with special needs students, meeting with high-tech executives or supporting global micro-finance efforts, these experiences help students figure out what matters to them and what they’re going to do about it.
