Purpose and Mission Statement

The purpose of The Hillside Christian Schools (HCS) is to meet the holistic needs of the child, which allows their fullest God-given potential to be addressed.  Consequently, we will provide a quality education that teaches them to maintain Godly values and beliefs, with an approach that uses the principles of Foundation Based Education.

Our mission will be guided by the Holy Bible, carried out by a dedicated and committed Christian staff group, with the help and cooperation of parents and other stakeholders, in a positive, safe, challenging, and Christian environment, where all persons are valued.

Vision Statement

"And the Lord said, "Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run readeth it."

(Habakkuk 2:2)


Hillside Christian Schools provide Christian Pre-Kindergarten and Elementary education for the school population of St. Maarten.  Using the Holy Bible as our guide, students will be facilitated in their learning to utilize and develop their unique God-given abilities.

HCS employs Christian teachers to teach Christian education and to teach students to know, love, respect, and serve God. Consequently, students are equipped with the necessary tools, and encouraged and supported to be life-long learners. 

The schools provide two streams for the language of instruction: English and Dutch, taking into consideration the different needs of our students.   

There is an exchange of ideas with other schools, which enriches the experiences for teachers and expands the learning opportunities for students. 

School Motto

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
(Philippians 4:13)
