Hillside Academy East Campus, a member of The Menta Group, is an alternative safe school for middle and high school students who are at-risk of suspension or expulsion or have other special education needs to be served. The school’s curriculum is geared to primary, middle and high school students, and the credit earning system for high school students is aligned with its partnering district/Chicago Public Schools. This partnership thus allows for seamless transitions from and to the students’ home schools. HAEC was established to positively impact the academic and social-emotional competencies of students referred to the program, and offer a variety of school-to-work options for special education students. The classrooms are designed to be active learning environments where young people have the opportunity to experience educational, behavioral, and social success on a regular basis. The high school curriculum aids students in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary for success in post-secondary education and/or employment settings. For those students preparing to transition back to a public school setting, our transition specialist provides active support throughout the process.
