In order to meet the needs of the gifted students, a differentiated program, called the Hillside Enrichment Program, is in effect. Students who participate in this program are provided with a wide spectrum of educationally challenging units.
The HEP curriculum addresses a wide range of abilities, but does not replace the general instructional program and is designed to spark interest in the sciences and engineering for the self reliant and independent learners of Hillside. In HEP, students are encouraged to explore new vistas of learning. Some units that are covered throughout the year are:
Grade 7-8: Honors Language Arts, Honors Math, Honors Science, Honor Social Studies
Grades 9-12: Honors Language Arts 9, 10, 11 & 12, Honors Algebra II, Honors US I, Honors US II, Pre- Calculus Honors, Honors Biology, Honors Physics, Honors Spanish 2, 3 & 4, Honors Chemistry, Honors Geometry
