Student success at Hillsides Education Center is measured on an individual basis in several areas including academic progress, developmental growth, personal commitment and accountability, social functioning, and for teens, self-sufficiency. Our teachers test children semi-annually on their academic progress using the standardized Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement. Students are also tested annually using the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Test to determine their individual educational needs. Each special education student maintains an Individual Educational Plan, which includes information on his or her education program, school work, attitude, behavior, social interactions, etc.
We wanted to share some of our success stories that make us feel extremely proud of our students’ accomplishments and our staff’s commitment.
