Hill School of Fort Worth is celebrating its 50th anniversary of educating students with learning differences. To commemorate this great milestone, Hill School will host a series of events and celebrations throughout 2023.
Since its establishment in 1973, Hill School has grown from a small tutoring service to a full-service educational program serving different learners from kindergarten through their senior year. Its student population includes children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, high-functioning autism spectrum disorder, and other learning impairments. The Hill School faculty and staff are committed to ensuring their students receive the support and strategies that will push them to their full potential, all while offering the same extracurricular opportunities as any other traditional school setting. The School offers an enriching fine arts program, 12 different athletic teams, and ample opportunities for social and emotional growth.
“For 50 years, Hill School has been a steadfast leader in the Learning Difference community,” said Roxann Breyer, Head of School. “Our mission has remained to provide a high-quality education to students who learn differently by taking the time to assess and understand the needs of the whole child. This way we can meet them exactly where they are, build their self-confidence, and help them succeed in the classroom and their day-to-day life.”
Hill School kicked off the festivities with a school-wide, 70’s themed birthday bash. The next event in Hill School’s anniversary line-up will be on Tuesday, April 4th, with “Food for Thought,” a speaker luncheon featuring renowned author David Rendall who will speak on how a perceived weakness may actually be a person’s biggest strength.
Tickets for this event will be open to the community beginning March 1st. Other events include an Alumni family weekend in May, a “Summit Soiree” to thank major supporters in October, and a capstone Golden Gala and Auction in January 2024.
“We are looking forward to this incredibly special year as we celebrate the differences that make our students so special, and the difference we’ve been able to make for our families over the past 50 years,” says Breyer.
