What is Toolbox?

The 12 Tools

Breathing Tool

Listening Tool

Please & Thank You Tool
Apology & Forgiveness Tool

Toolbox is a K-6 curriculum that supports children in understanding and managing their own emotional, social and academic success.

Children learn 12 simple yet powerful Tools. With practice these tools become valuable personal skills:  self-awareness, self-management and relationship skills; these in turn foster responsible decision-making.  Because the techniques are simple and the language is shared, children adopt the tools and master them quickly.

Toolbox starts with each child, building self-knowledge and self-mastery; it soon improves empathy and communication and helps resolve conflicts in the classroom, playground and whole school community.  Children naturally take these Tools home improving family and home life.

Hillside School Uniform Policy for 2015-2016

We are educating the future doctors, lawyers, educators, CEO’s and entrepreneurs of the world. 

We want to instill an ethic of professionalism and business in all our students.  Most importantly,

we want to demonsrate our unified front to the world, like a uniformed professional sports team. 

We are a team.  Teams wear uniforms for unity and strength.
