I love this school. My oldest started in Kinder, and is now a 6th grader. I have a second child in the school as well. Our family has had the best experience academically. The parental involvement is amazing as well. The reason this school succeeds is because of all the caring families and teachers here. The teachers are always open to working with you to help the kids do well. Both my kids have great friends and teachers year after year.
When I rate a school, I look at 3 things. Parent involvement, teacher performance, and how the students grade in their studies. Students are continuing to perform at their highest levels. Although I remember not long ago, we rated at a "10", now we are a rated at "9". I just want to remind everyone the reason we all work so hard at Hollow hills. That reason is "Our Children". I wish that teachers and members of the PTA could remember this and try to leave their personal issues outside the school.
My child attended Hollow Hills for seven years. Hollow Hills has a good reading incentive program called "The Accelerated Reading Program" which is designed to motvate the students to read more. In the child's last year at this school, the teacher for that year didn't like the program for some reason. I sent a couple of emails requesting that she use the program because the reading output of the child was way down in her class. The teacher refused to use the reading program and the principal didn't do anything to help me or the child either. It seemed to me that the teacher was not focussed on what was best for the child. I write this for the benefit of future students of this school. The star ratings below refer to the last year of the child's attendance as before that I would have given 5 stars.
I'm a former student. I went to this school from K through 6, and had a horrible time. I was smart. I had wonderful grades for them. I was just a little out of the ordinary, in terms of the way I thought and did things. Hollow Hills wouldn't have it. The staffers were no help, completely unwilling to cooperate. I was pretty much torn apart by all the students, teachers, and principal, to the point where the next year, when I left for junior high and was actually appreciated, I had no idea how to deal with it, had a mental breakdown, developed OCD, and had to leave for an independent study school so I could actually work. My younger brother and a friend of his have had similar experiences and both have dropped out of HH and are now going to the aforementioned independent study school. Bottom line: If you have kids who think outside of the box, are the artistic sort, etc., this is the last place you'll want to send them. No tolerance or mercy here from students or staffs. It did, however, build character for me.. For better or worse.
Love this school. Great teachers and staff. Very caring and positive environement. I never once had a problem in the past two years my son was here. Wish we didnt have to move , will miss his teachers and the school. Great parents involvement too.

They have put in alot of effort to teach all the kids , My daughter has gone there and now my son. In 7th grade my daughter was well above the rest of the kids that attend reg school.
school has amazing teachers and i love the challenge they give to the kids...
Love the focus on fundamentals and parent involvement. Have 2 kids at Hollow Hills and both enjoy it.
Encouraging the loving of education in the minds of all their students not only by the activities they offer but by encouraging the parents to keep the ball rolling at home
New to Hollow Hills, however, I am thrilled with the parent involvement! I am looking forward to all the events they can offer because of this help!
I love that when we need volunteers that we get a response more than we need! I love that the parents are so involved along with the staff, it helps our children get a great education and have fun and enjoy school!
Hollow Hills has the best teachers and staff. It also has a lot of moms and dads who volunteer many hours to help give our children the best education possible.
We have amazing Voluteers who support our school and all of the programs we do for our children. Our events are so much fun and the kids and parents really enjoy themselves.
The teachers and children are great!! Can't wait for my other 2 to attend.
Our principle is on top of everything. He keeps us all together and moving forward to teaching a great bunch of kids. Our teachers are so dedicated to our children and there education. They do a wonderful job even with all the cuts and budget issues. We love them.
We love the dedication of the teachers and the parent involvement. The cirriculaum keeps my child on target and sustains her attention. The principal is great too!
