Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The bullying that occurs at Hillbrook is constant & vicious.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
The school caters to students with learning differences to the point of holding the whole class back


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The bullying problem is not acknowledged or addressed by the teaching staff or the administration

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Homework varies by teacher with no real consistency. Some teachers are tough where others are too easy



- a
Bullying is prevalent through the school & is ignored by most teachers & the administration. This seems to go hand-in-hand with the troubled students who attend this school. Students that require aides because their behavior is so out of control.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teaching staff at Hillbrook is second to none. They know each child inside and out, and are focused on supporting them in achieving their best. Classes are fun yet academically rigorous and I am very impressed.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Just right. Enough to reinforce what was learned in the classroom that day and but not onerous or stressful. In the lower grades, there is a huge emphasis on reading time as homework.

Develops character: Strongly agree

I can’t say enough good things about Hillbrook. This is our eighth year at the school and we have two children, one in the lower school and one in the middle school. Both are very different children - different learners and with different interests and motivations - and yet Hillbrook knows them, encourages them, and is getting the very best out of them. My kids are known and valued by every teacher and student, stretched academically and taught to take risks - they are getting a very solid foundation to their education. The teaching staff at Hillbrook is second to none, and I’m very impressed by how well rounded the education is: not just the core academics but music, arts and languages. I know they will be very well prepared for what follows Hillbrook, as they transition into high school. We as a family feel a very strong connection to this community and would highly recommend Hillbrook.



- a
Our family absolutely loves Hillbrook. We have two young children, grades JK and 1st, who are very different children and very different learners. Yet, our school ensures that both are known and valued for the strengths and quirks they bring to the table. Each child's learning style is observed early on and they are encouraged to thrive in this environment. There is also an incredibly sense of community at Hillbrook where the adults in our family are also known and valued. We couldn't feel more welcome or connected to this incredible school.
