School Description:
The Seven Hills School, founded in 1962, is a not-for-profit, independent day school for children from preschool through grade eight. With its fully enrolled student body of 375, the school strives to be an economically and ethnically diverse community. As stated in its Mission, "The Seven Hills School is a learning community with the mission to develop the intellect, engage the spirit, and foster respect for and responsibility to our world," the school espouses a philosophy that considers the growth of the child in all areas: academic, social, emotional, aesthetic, and physical, and includes a strong emphasis on character building. The educational philosophy recognizes that both success and failure create the potential for growth and learning. Integrated studies and hands-on participation encourage imaginative and critical thinking, as well as mastery of academic skills. A wide variety of assemblies, field trips, guest speakers, reenactments, and simulations are utilized to augment the education for all children at Seven Hills.
