Hillside School Experience (Grades K-12)

All Ages

This one-hour Hillside Home School tour with an optional additional activity is designed for K-12 class field trips to the Hillside Home School at Taliesin. A revolutionary design for Wright, Hillside was built on three levels to follow the hill's natural slope. Built in 1902 as a boarding school for his two aunts, Hillside houses a theater and a 5,000-square-foot drafting studio. Contact us to schedule.
