The Microsoft Surface: Saving the Art of Writing
We, at Hillview Prep, are big fans of the Surface. We believe it is the best and most versatile tablet in the market today. We use it extensively to take and highlight notes and text. Coupled with our cloud service, students and instructors are able to effectively communicate anywhere and at anytime.
What ever happened to the classic pen and paper? The tactile experience of writing letters.
You can write directly on webpages with the Surface Pen, which is a delight to use. The Surface Pen feels like a real pen. We like the sensors on it and feels like you are using a real palm. It also recognizes your palm, so your palm does not interfere with writing. You can quickly switch between lines and graph paper. Cut and paste is seamless.

Quip: Where Students and Instructors Collaborate
Quip is an amazing tool that we at Hillview Prep love. It enables our instructors and students to collaborate real time and from anywhere in the world.
Our instructors create content that any student can access on any device and work at his own pace.
Our students are able to get real time or delayed feedback based on their schedule and needs.
Quip is very easy to use. You can just take a photo and upload it directly from your phone. You can upload documents, create content, chat, and share with other instructors and students.
Instant sharing between parent, student, and instructor
