Hilltop students (from toddlers through eighth grade) receive daily instruction in Spanish, physical education, music and art as part of the regular curriculum. Students at the elementary level also receive regular computer and technology instruction with a focus on technology as a tool for research, presentation and publication (see the school’s technology plan under curriculum). Students in our upper elementary receive robotics, in addition to other technology.
The school also offers academic competitions at age appropriate levels for those students who choose to participate: spelling bee, chess competitions, geography bee, music competitions and participation in a non judged and optional judged science fair, olympics field day and art/music festival.
