I love this school because it is so fun and my kids love it i have3 and all of tthem went to the hills and loved i have a 3rd grader that still goes and says that every day is beter than the one before
I absolutely love this school! Del Mar Hills is a small public school with a private school feel. The teachers are excellent and the parents are very involved. It feels like there is a great sense of community and school spirit.
Excellent school. Del Mar Hills Academy of Arts and Sciences provides a top notch education in a small school setting! The teachers and staff are excellent and the parents support continued growth at the school. My daughter attended elementary school there and my son is currently enrolled. I am thrilled to be part of such a vibrant program! The combination of arts and sciences provide a balanced education and my children have excelled as a result. The principal and the teachers continually impress.
Del Mar Hills Academy has an integrated Arts, Science and Technology program that encourages children to think creatively. It's a small school where the children know each other and the older children are encouraged to help the younger ones. The teachers are amazing and work well as a team. We have a principal who supports the staff and listens to the parents. At the Hills, we also have a very active group of parents who want the elementary school experience to be the best it can be for the students - so that the students love learning and become the best they can be. I am very proud to be a parent and a supporter of Del Mar Hills Academy.
Del Mar Hills Academy has a wonderful school culture and climate. The school is small and students, staff, and parents all know each other. The integrated Arts, Science, and Technology program is particularly strong thanks to excellent Specialist teachers. Parents are actively involved in school activities in and out of the classroom. Teachers seem genuinely happy to be at the school. The environment is friendly, warm, and constructive.
We transferred from private to the Hills this year and we are stunned with the exceptional quality of the education at the Hills. The combination of teaching staff, curriculum and Academy approach is very special. The Hills Academy approach emphasizes integrated learning. Very few schools in the country get this right - the kids literally learn about a subject and experience it in every discipline. Nothing teaches problem solving, reinforces learning and results in a more well rounded education than integrated learning. The Hills is a hidden gem.
Amazing school! My daughter is graduating this year and we are sad to go. I can not say enough about the wonderful community we have here at the Hills. From the teachers to the parents, students and staff, I highly recommend this school!
Del Mar Hills Academy and provides special instructors for the Arts, Science and Technology. Our son, now in High School, and daughter, a sixth grader, came from private schools on the East Coast and acclimated well because of the school's small, intimate size. Teachers provide individual instruction when necessary and are always available via email or for in-person meetings before and after school. We lived closer to Del Mar Heights School when we moved here, but the smaller, more intimate environment at Hills proved to be the right fit. The teachers are exceptional and the school community, although situated in a well-to-neighborhood, is not snobbish but welcoming to kids with various backgounds. The physical plant is also good: The community invested more than $1M 2-3 years ago to provide Hills students with a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center used for concerts, assemblies and community events.
