What Our Parents Say!

There is nothing sweeter than to see one of the older students leading the young ones in song and dance. Our son says “I love it at Hitherfield!” We echo this statement and feel that the education, happiness and well-being of the students at Hitherfield are truly the driving force of the wonderful school.


It seems cliche to say that Hitherfield is like a big family. They have created a family-oriented, yet extremely professional, educational environment. Hitherfield has become a home away from home for our son, where there are expectations to be met, contributions to be made and loving support of the results. For that, we are truly grateful.


Hitherfield School

Our school is a happy place for children to learn and grow, and we warmly invite you to visit us! We believe that when children are happy, engaged, and challenged, that optimum learning will take place.

At Hitherfield every child is unique, and comes to us with his or her own strengths and interests. By individualizing our program in Math and Language particularly, we nurture growth, success and confidence in our students. Developing confidence, decision-making and respect are key components of our Mission Statement and daily life at the school. Our academic programs are rigorous and include Math, Language, Science, Social Science, French, Visual Arts, Music and Physical Education, and students from Grades 6 to Grade 8 sit exams in all subject areas three times each year. We are unique in many ways and you should visit us to experience the warm inviting atmosphere that so many prospective parents comment upon.

When you pull into the driveway you will not fail to be impressed by the beautiful location of the school sitting high on the hill; by the pond where all children delight in learning about natural environments,catching and studying frogs and tadpoles, reading and sketching; by our open fields which offer ample space for play, orienteering, cross-country skiing and running.
