Why Give

Like all independent schools, each year we face the challenge of providing the highest standards of educational excellence while holding tuition increases to a minimum. Unfortunately, tuition alone does not cover the cost of attracting and retaining the best teachers, maintaining our beautiful environment, or provide the needed funding to support our Financial Aid program.

You can make a difference right now with a gift to our school. Every dollar supports the work we do in educating bright young minds that will lead the next generation.

Whether it is $5 or $5,000, every gift makes a difference in the life of our school. We hope you will consider making a gift to Hillside Montessori school that is meaningful to your family.

Please feel free to contact Ajantha Nadesan with any questions at (949) 858-8818 or ajantha@hillsidemontessori.org
