The Hilltown Cooperative Charter Public School currently serves 162 children, kindergarten through eighth grade, from 24 towns throughout the hilltowns and the valley. Students use experiential, hands-on activities, the expressive arts, and interdisciplinary studies to foster critical thinking skills and a joy of learning. Parents, staff and community members participate in a whole school cooperative, which guides and supports the academic program.
