Rolling Hills has by far some of the best teachers around! I was truly shocked to see they only rate 7. We transfer IN to Rolling Hills because of the fabulous programs. One of the few schools around that still thinks music, art, PE, and a library are an important in kids education.

My child is currently attending Rolling Hills and is in the k-3 ACE program. The teachers in this classroom are wonderful, patient and really encourage the children to be independent learners and problem solvers. My student is currently in kindergarten and has learned so much this year. I wasn't sure which program to enroll my child but I am so happy especially after touring many other schools and programs. This class always welcomes volunteers, whenever it is convenient even for just an hour. I love that I can come in and see what the kids are doing and take an active role in their class! This class is a great balance of arts and creativity and the work my child comes home with on a weekly basis reflects that there is constant learning going on. They do lots of science experiments and observation and reflection, buddy reading, and rotating units that my child especially loves for learning all the new facts! I love the thirst for more knowledge that comes home weekly and I can continue with. I high recommend this class! The school also welcomes transfer students.

I have had the great experience in having my children attend this school. This school has some uniqueness to it as it has the multi-age programs to fit different needs. This school has some of the best teachers I have had the opportunity to meet and work with. The teachers at this school care a great deal about the kids they have in their classrooms and it always feels like family on the campus which is so rare. We had a short term of dysfunction with a principal who didn't fit the RHE schools goals but sith the passion of the parents and the community she left. This school not only has the passion of its faculty but the community who continues to have the school at its best!

I have had all four of my children attend this school, they range from extremely autisic to extremely social with no disabilities. With the exception of one teacher that was a bad fit for my daughter and the multi-age classrooms; the rest is top notch. They have not just great programs for pre-schooo for autisic children, they have arts, garden, music, and other programs that are hard to come by. I love this school!

Yes great school if your child has no learning disabilities, then yes I'd rate this school as great, as long as your child can basically teach themselves. And Isn't a challenge for any of the teachers, then yes this school is great . My child is in the 6th grade and cant read above kindergarten level. They keep passing her on to next grade unprepared for what's to come. Im gonna send her out of state maybe less crowded class rooms and caring teachers she'll finally learn to read,

This school is one of the best public elementary schools you can find. It's grounds are beautiful, with colorful murals and gardens kept up by the teachers and children. Every teacher my son has had thus far is caring and completely committed to his success. They have a strong focus on language arts which I love. The office staff is bar none and the principal knows every student by name! Very happy to be a part of this school and community.

I have 2 children in the multi-age classroom and they both love the program. They are completely different learners and the program fits them both. There is a lot of parent involvement and it's nice to know I can drop in at any time unannounced. It is teaching them both the responsiblity of staying on task and organization of work and time management. The teaching is done in a caring environment, by dedicated teachers.

Rolling Hills School does not focus on what's important. The multi-age classes are chaotic with too much down time for students. The school population has increased yet nothing has been done to accommodate more children. Rolling Hills students certainly know how to have fun, but where's the learning?

This school is fantastic! My son is currently in kindergarten in a multi-age classroom and he loves it. The principal is always out greeting parents and children, the office staff is extremely attentive. I am regularly in the classroom volunteering and the children are not only being challenged academically; they are also introduced to different types of arts. I highly recommend Rolling Hills. You can schedule a very thorough tour with the principal during the spring..that's what my husband and I did last year.

The Multi Age classes are a gift from God. I have two boys that attend them and they love it and are learning not only their basic required skills, they are also learning how to be leaders and are developing to be muture, caring, and confident boys. Can't say enough about the Parent invlovement. You would be hard pressed to find a school that has a better family and community spirit!

My daughter has attended Rolling Hills for 2 years. One year being in a traditional classroom, and the second being in the ABC program. Both have been wonderful. The ABC works better with my child, but it is not for everyone. The teachers are encouraging and caring and the office staff is helpful. They are even closely monitoring my daughter with her progression because she is slightly immature for her grade. It is nice to know that the school is concerned for my daughter, and is willing to work with her, rather than to sweep her under the rug for students who aren't as much of a challenge.

My child is in the MP3 program and I am not sure what the parent was talking about that said it cost $100's of dollars to go to school here. There is no charge because it is a public school. With my child in the MP3 program I am able to participate in my child's education and see what he is doing and I like this. Our old school (we transferred) would not let me be in the classroom on my volunteer days because the teacher was uncomfortable with parents. In this program I work once a week in the classroom for 3 1/2 hours and if one wants to volunteer for more hours it is always welcome. This program is not for every child so take a tour and talk to parents that are in the program to see what it is like. If you are a parent that likes tests, homework and drives you child to get high test scores then this MP3 program is not for you. The MP3 program encourages the children to be independent learners, to think, question, problem solve, and work together.

This is a great school. They really care about kids and work hard to make sure that every student is successful. There are lots of family events and an active arts program.

All this school cares about is making money and test scores. They lack the ability to discipline children its chaotic and stuffy in the classrooms and most of these teachers methods of teaching is reading out of a book. Not very good for adapting to different learning styles.

Rolling Hills is a wonderful neighborhood school with a traditional program and a MultiAge program. There is a strong focus on the arts and students use technology in their classrooms. It is a pretty campus. Parents are very involved in PTA and classrooms. My kids love it there. It is a great school!

We have just finished two years with a difficult principal. I felt very unsupported with my concerns and problems and talked down to. Some parents like the 'alternative' classes but I question them. This is a public school and to be asked for $100's is ridiculous.

I checked out 3 schools whenI was looking for a school for my son. I found that Rolling Hills would meet the needs for my son. He is currently in k-3 combination program. I am very happy with this class, teachers and the education he is receiving. This is the class that doesn't require parent participation. I recommend this class for parents that want a somewhat traditional setting using the state curriculum and yet customized to your child's needs. If interested in visiting ask for Hood/Michael's class. They are great!

Rolling Hills offers several alternative classes including 2 great multi-age classes. Many of the teachers 'loop', meaning they keep the same students for 2 years, spanning 2 grades. This allows students to be more productive since the teacher know what learning style works best for your child. The K-3 multi-age class allows students to spend 4 years with the same teachers and students, but there is manditory parent participation. This is the ideal class for someone who would like to home-school in theory, but is unable to. The arts, both visual and performing arts are strongly emphasised.

I had searched schools for my children before they started kindergarten. I find this school with very high standards. I love the teachers and the way the school runs. I am proud to have my kids in such a wonderful setting.

I attended this school since I was in kindergarten, and I finished the sixth grade four years ago. I loved this school and it has a great layout, great teachers, and most of all great students!

I attended this school for two years (5th and 6th) and since I had just moved to Fullerton, I found the atmosphere very calm and inviting compared to where I had come from. The teachers were extremely kind and caring, and the students--surprisingly carefree and intelligent. The campus is easily maneuverable and tiny, and my 6th grade class really helped me prepare for Junior High.
