The Hill School of Wilmington

Having received strong community support for our inaugural Oyster Roast in March of 2022, we have decided to hold the event again in 2023!  To celebrate providing explicit, multisensory, individualized instruction to students in the greater Wilmington community for over ten years, we are hosting an annual oyster roast and cookout at UNC Wilmington - the exact location of our original meeting that started the school.


Our celebration will be held in the beautiful atrium of the Watson College of Education building on the campus of UNCW. Free parking is available. For directions to the venue, please click here.
