This is my 2nd yr of my child attending this school. I have to say, I am quite impressed! The teachers are so caring. The principal is the most involved I've ever seen a principal to be and the kids all love her! You can tell the children in this school are being cared for by the joy in their faces going in and coming out of school! My son loves it and everyday looks forward to going. Their policies on bullying are also exceptional. Couple of minor incidents that were nipped in the bud immediately. The teachers welcome communication and participation from parents! Love this school!

This is my 8th year as a parent at Falcon Hill elementary and during that time i have recommended this school to a number of people. But in the past year i feel like I'm back in high school. Drama,drama,drama. The teachers are great but the PTO whom have taken over the school have made it unbearable. The school isn't about the students anymore. its about competioin between parents.and the children are suffering. ther are no consequences for the inappropriate behaviors witnessed of the staff.

Not only do the teachers truly care about their students, it is like one big extended family! If one family is in need, everyone(teachers, parents & students) to help that family if at all possible. Falcon Hill has 'created' some amazing students who will go on to do great things in life.

Falcon Hill has a Principal in Dr. Taylor-David who really cares and her Leadership shows from the top down. I have met with her on several occasions about serious personal concerns for my children and she takes the time and energey to see to it that things are done properly and a Father can have piece of mind about his childrens educational experience.

I have 2 kids that go to this school for the past 3 years. I have a boundary exception for them so that theyare able to go to this school. The teachers are wonderful, and the principal is awesome too. My kids enjoy their time there, and look forward to everyday. The only negative I have to say is that the lady in the front office is very two faced. Nice to the parents, and rude to the kids. Other than that, I love this school.

My son attended Kindergarten last year and we all loved Falcon Hill. We are sad to be moving to another district. My son was challenged, improved throughout the year, and looked forward to going to school every day.

Great Principal, excellent teachers with great support services for LD children from ist grade to 5th grade. In the 6th grade teachers are less supportive in preparation for Junior high does cause some problems for children who need the continued support to succeed. Highly recommend the school, the teahers and the current principal are very involved with the children and parents.

The gifted program is excellent. Students have a complete day of their gifted class. Other teachers work around the gifted program so that their gifted children don't miss any major new lesson. Many teachers use the gifted day as a review day. The teacher who currently runs the gifted program is incredible. Students do individual self-paced learning and structured projects, such as research reports. Both of my children know how to write a research paper! They both learned how to in third grade through this program!

School needs a better special ed program for the upper grades. Regular teachers are great. The k-4 special ed dept is awesome but then when the kids need it most for jr high it goes down hill.
