From the volunteers to the administration, everyone makes an effort to assure our children's safety.

Amount of homework: Agree

They have homework M, Tu & Th in most every class. I think it's important to have 1 night off & Wednesday is perfect since it's the middle of the week.

I feel like the administration does a fantastic job of making their stiudents accountable for their actions. Even if a child did wrong they are praised for their honesty, which I believe is critical when establishing fairness across the board. The administration has very struck guidelines established. Therefore, regardless of who the person is or isn't the teachers & administration follow the set guidelines to handle any altercation in a fair manner. The teachers actually teach the definition of integrity long before the kids can say it correctly, much less spell it, by being an example through their own actions of what a person w/ character looks like.

Communication is key. Teachers keep us informed on a daily and weekly basis. The school makes a point to create fun activities for the kids & parents.

The teachers are engaged with every student, their safety is never compromised, & the kids love it.

Low teacher:student ratio. They have a lot of aides that help with the classes. We've been here for 4 years and have always been impressed with the level of care and knowledge from the teachers. The Principal and VP are very hands on and know the kids. It's rare to walk through the school and not see them, even before and after school pick up. There is also a lot of parent and community involvement. Even those that do not have children at the school but live in the area come to support the events, like fall fest. I am very proud that my son goes to school here. We looked at a couple of private schools and felt that this was our better option. I'm also one that believes in holding the parent(s accountable as well. I firmly believe that the more the parent(s) is involved with the child, completing homework, and keeping an open line of communication, the better experience their child will have and the more they will learn.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
They all have such a positive attitude and they love those kids and really want them to do their best. And not once have I heard a teacher complain at Common Core. They speak about how they are changing and growing and learning with it as well. They say that if they have a bad attitude about it, then their students will too.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Often times my child is able to get his homework done in class. If it's sent home, I know that I can email, call or text his teacher after school if I have questions and they will respond!


Develops character: Strongly agree

They hold the children accountable for their actions. Starting in 3rd grade, the children become "Big Buddies" to the K-2 graders

My son started kindergarten this year, and he's really excelling at Indian Hills. The principal, teachers, staff, etc. have all been very helpful. It's a great school and we look forward to the years to come!
