We had toured a number of preschools prior and found Hill Point to check all the boxes on our list. We appreciate their philosophy of constantly exposing various activities and concepts to the students and have the students choose the activities to work on. When you visit the classroom, it is quiet, peaceful and orderly with each student work individually. The Pre-K/K classes contain 3 - 6 yr olds so kids of varying ages interact with one another and can demonstrate leadership with the younger kids while learning from the older ones. There are many extracurricular activities, some free and some with a fee.
My son has loved 1st grade and is excited for 2nd grade this fall. He loves his teachers and the style of learning. He is eager to learn new things and the hands on has built up his confidence. The projects they do are fantastic. They also offer extracurricular activities such as dance, yoga, chess, piano, tennis which are all fun for them. We couldn't be happier here and I can't say that enough.
My Child has grown leaps and bounds academically thanks to the dedicated Teachers and especially the director of the school who takes extra interest care to ensure each students development. We could not be happier.
It s not every day that I stop to write accolades or give a testimonial, but I really wanted to express how thankful we are for finding Hill Point Montessori Preparatory School. With the guidance of your wonderful teachers, we have watched our daughter develop before our eyes in many ways - academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We continuously watch the light bulb click in her brain - as our daughter's age/growth development hits that stage where everything the school has been teaching her thus far progresses beyond simple repetitive learning, to connection, reason, and purpose in her real daily life. It's a joy watching her face light up when she makes a connection or solves something on her own, when she finally sees it come together. Hill Point truly is a rare find these days. Its standards in academics and behavioral sciences are only the tip of the iceberg to making this school stand out. The harmony of personalities between the teaching staff and students is unlike any I've seen in other schools. Hill Point Montessori is a school for parents dedicated to enhancing their child's minds and exposure to life, and opening their hearts -- at their own pace.
My daughter started at Hill Point Montessori in May of this year. I couldn't be happier with her continued accelerated progress and passion for education. After a very difficult time in a highly regarded public school district, it became obvious that the public school system was not a good fit for her. Perfect school for those who need to have the opportunity to explore beyond the curriculum and create new challenges when ready to move forward, rather than the traditional public way of thinking where a child moves on with the class, once those who need extra help are ready. They allow for and even encourage teachable moments on a daily basis. The children at Hill Point Montessori are allowed to work to their level in each subject matter which means if they catch on quicker - they can move on! No sitting in a classroom bored while the teacher explains and re-explains a mathematical function or sentence structure to another child. If you are looking for a program that is going to take your child's individual strengths and challenges into consideration while encouraging growth and solid educational skills -This is the place for you! I recommend without hesitation -110%
My children are thriving academically and socially at this school. Emphasis is on the whole child: individualized education, focus on becoming contributing members of society, second-language (spanish) instruction for all grades and an excellent PE program.
