Students in all grades at Hillside Academy learn about art and music through a comprehensive arts and music integrated curriculum that involves higher order thinking skills. We at Hillside and Garland ISD are committed to the education of the whole child and as a component of that education believe that:
- every student should have a basic knowledge, skills, and appreciation of the fine arts.
- a quality arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self-motivation, and cooperation necessary for success in life.
Hillside students are very fortunate to have many opportunities in the fine arts. Kinder through fifth-grades have music class and art class weekly. Students in fourth and fifth grades have the opportunity to participate in our Strings Orchestra.
