Only a few good teachers, also too many budget cuts and not enough broad reach into academics

School is good and focuses on overall development of child. Teachers are good at this school. There's a lot of parent participation and we parents can help make a difference along with Teachers/Principal.

The school is good. The principal and some older teachers are wonderful and really care about teaching kids. Most of the younger and inexperienced teachers are not that good- both is imparting eductaion and discipline. We parents constantly talk about how some concepts are just brushed over and then tested on immediately without reinforcements. Disciplining is also random. School environment has gone down greatly over the years, especially during lunch. Many students are misbehaving and goofing off. There are not enough yard duties and supervisoin over children. Seems like kids don't learn polite social behavior there anymore, as most newer teachers don't seem to care. I agree with the previous comment made by a parent, that the high scores are a result of Asian parents sending their kids tutoring after school. Sadthing for a school that was so good just a few years ago.

The high score of this school is a result of the ambitious Asian parents there - most students have tutors and after-school classes. There are only a few teachers that are really professionals.

Blue Hills is a great school but I agree with the sentiment shared here. Over the years, I have seen parent involvement decline and you have the same parents who step up to the plate and get burnt out. Most of the teachers are wonderful and there are some who go above and beyond. It is a joy to see my child never want to leave class because she loves her teacher. I just find it sad when a teacher has to beg parents to help out.

Having had several children go through Blue Hills and 1 currently there, I have to say that even though most of the teachers are excellent, the parental involvement is weak and lacks true community now. I am troubled at the future of what was once an exceptional school where great children friendships formed - flourished - and extended through the entire Cupertino system.
