I'm very disappointed with this school. They teach below standards, they do not challenge their students and they reward students for silly little reasons, instead of, awarding them for their academic progress. It's truly disheartening to see the same students get the same awards for "cleaning the campus or doing some sort of good" which is great to do, BUT, whatever happened to recognizing them for their academic efforts too! Good students shouldn't have to pay for children who do not excel because of the lack of parenting they receive at home. It's not fair!
We attended Hidden Hills K-3 and I transfered to a " 9 " school thinking I was missing out on something here, and My daughter had a lot more friends at a near by school as well so I thought it was the right choice. Boy was I wrong. The attention and time put into her education by the amazing staff here is not reflected in their test scores. When I look back at the quality of teachers I was blessed have help me raise my daughter I feel sad that I removed her from this school. I credit each of them for having a big hand in raising her into a smart capable and productive student. Not to mention all the lessons in life and examples of character she experienced. We truly miss our teachers here. With nearly 3X's the pupils at the new school my child is lost in the shuffle and the small town, everyone knows you feeling, that is a thing of the past.
My kids where in this school for 3 years. My son was having issues learning and the teacher and principal did everything they could to help him and made him feel cared. I will always be grateful with them and everybody in the school. Sadly I do have to move them to another school do to job but I truly recommend this school.
Both of our girls attend Hidden Hills and love it. The teachers are truly incredible in their commitment to give the students the best well rounded education experience possible given the many budget constraints. The schools' PTA is comprised of the most dedicated to fund everything from field trips, art masters program, books, balls, science fair, and even the Librarian's pay.
My kids attended this school for 7 months before we did everything in our power to move out of the district. As the previous reviewer said, the teachers and staff are fine, it's the principal who is totally incompetent. We had an issue of bullying going on and went through all the appropriate steps to have it taken care of but the principal would not take the actions she should have. It finally took me going to the super and threatening to go to the media, as well as another parent threatening to sue before the bully was dealt with.
the teachers are great and really good in encouraging students to be the best they can be.
Hidden Hills has a rigorous academic schedule that rivals or exceeds the performance expectations of private schools nearby. HH provides a very rich environment for children to explore their evolving world (and with the latest technology). The teachers and parents are experienced and care a lot about the school. My kids love it!
There is NOTHING not to love! Great location, great teachers & staff and the best STUDENTS in the world!!!
The teachers are prepared and challenge the kids daily based on their needs. My kids love school!
I have two kids that have been or are now at Hidden Hills Elementary. The experience has been awesome, the teachers, the PTA, the activities, music program, art program...all have been wonderful experiences. It's great to have a neighborhood school that is such a big part of the community!
Hidden Hills has some really great teachers and staff who care! Our PTA puts on great activities & fundraising events each year to help support our school and student needs.
Everything about this school is what every child deserves to have as a stepping stool into their future!
I love the message of commuity service. I believe every individual, child or adult becomes a better person when they believe they are part of something bigger. Hidden Hills school not only teaches the child, it teaches the child to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
Hidden Hills Elementary is a great school with wonderful teachers, caring principal and dedicated parent volunteers.
Tons of diveristy--which is hard to come by in South Orange County--great teachers, a wonderful group of PTA parents, and a terrific campus.
Wonderful , caring , involved teachers , an awesome and dedicated PTA , and lots of parents who care about their community and their kids .
We just moved to this community last year. We are very, very pleased with Hidden Hills Elementary. We have 2 children enrolled in Hidden Hills and they have both had great success and a lot of academic growth. They have learned to love the process of learning itself, a lifelong tool indeed. The Principal, Ms. Nunez, is fair, even-keeled, and very down to earth and helpful. She is always approachable and she is there for the parents and students if they need her.
My children have been at Hidden Hills for 9 years and we loved every single teacher we ever got! Gtreat teachers great parent involvment. Great principal who cares!
