School Spotlight: Hillside School
Dunn School, Marlborough, MA

Hillside School was founded as a farm school in 1901 by Miss Charlotte Drinkwater and her sister, Mrs. Mary Drinkwater Warren, on a farm near the western boundary of Greenwich, Massachusetts. The school was created to serve as a home and an educational institution for boys from Massachusetts and was formally chartered in 1907. When the original site was flooded in 1927, to create the Quabbin Reservoir, Hillside relocated to 320 acres of rural farm land in Marlborough, Massachusetts; its current location. Over the years, Hillside has maintained its comfortable farm surroundings while focusing on its mission to provide a structured and supportive academic community for boys during their middle school years.
