In regards to the "Teacher's" review that was posted; that is scary! Grammar is Important for crying out loud! As a "teacher", you should have proof read your review!!! My daughter has 2 more years before starting middle school... I just don't know where to send her. I need to do my research & pray for an answer.

I have read nothing but negative reviews about Hillview Middle School and I thought people needed to hear the real truth. My son is currently attending his 6 the grade school year there and has had a very positive experience. The School's Principal Ms. Cadena and Vice Principal, Mrs. Torres are both awesome. They hold the students accountable for unacceptable behavior and the school is a safe place for our children to attend. The teachers who my son has this year are all wonderful and passionate about teaching. My son loves all of his teachers. There of course are bad apples at any school you send your child to. We love Hillview!

This school is terrible. Do not send your child here unless you want them to be bullied or turn bad. As a former student of this school I can say so myself that it was easily the worst time of my life. I got in trouble a lot, teachers didn't help much, I got blamed for loads of things, and got caught up in some pretty bad messes. Lots of gang members are at the school too. Also there were after school fights going on every day. Teachers won't care for your children if you send them here, and if you do send them here, they'll make your child feel like a troublemaker, no matter how well behaved you think he/she may be. There has only been a handful of teachers that have actually helped me during that time. The worst part isn't even the classroom, its during break, lunch, and after school. That's where all the real mess happens. There are no clubs at this school and no one pays attention to the after school teams. If you want your child to have a poor experience in their life, hillview is the school for you.

This school is one of the top in my book. I have seen several over the past many years and this school is right up there. I would have given 5 stars if there where more parent involvement. I know the PTA is spot on and those that do get involved, this is not for you. This is for the parents that have children that fail then turn and blame the school and say you didn't know. I guess it is the swing of the social pendulum to push blame to the school and teachers and everyone else when you stood by and let it happen. I have watched this administrators, teachers and staff work feverishly to get your children to pass. I applaud Hillview for doing what they can with what little budget is left. I have even watched teachers take money away from their families to spend on your children. It warms my heart to know that educators like these still exist. Hillview, stay the course and fight the good fight. You guys do a bang up job.


Posted May 26, 2011

I used to think this school was going downhill, until we moved to La Habra and I transferred my kids to Washington Middle School in April. BIG MISTAKE!! There are kids affiliated with gangs there and drugs, which they have seen among other kids. Some of the kids at the school tell them " You are the white girls from HIllview" We are hispanic, I guess just not mexican enough... When you compare this school to HIllview, there is a big difference. I know every school has their strengths and weaknesses, but HIllview is way better than where my kids are attending. I should have never taken them out. We hope to move back to Whittier by next school year.

I hate the school. The rules there are awful and some of the teacher are jerks too. First off I remember last year all the eigth graders said "oooo" in lunch time. It wasn't that big of a deal no one was fighting yet the principle put it where all the students missed their feild time. The honors program is easier then anything. I hate most of the teachers plus Mr.Johnson is a creep. I hate that school! It treats the students as if it was a private school with all the outstandish rules!


Posted February 2, 2010

i agree that the lunch lines are to long and there is not enough time for my student to eat. Another concern i have is the time between getting awards to students .the last trimester never gets acknowledge at assemblies because there is not enough time my student is in 8th grade and for the last two year should of receive Princpal's list but doesn't and another thing they receive the awards into the trimester that is to long(ex. first trimester is over in early Dec. before Christmas break the students should have their assemblies not in late Jan. and in the same week second trimester progress reports are mailed home

My daughter is currently attending Hillview. She claims there is not enough time to eat her lunch due to the long lines. She has since been taking her lunch, and while waiting for friends to join her, she has encountered rude students who like to curse. She has been accepted at East Whittier, and I'm hoping she has a positive experience here than at Hillview.

This school is organized and keeps parents well informed via mail. The principal and both vice principals are approachable and friendly. I like that they have a dress code and they enforce it! It seems as if the faculty is on top of things and has the school running smoothly. I also have to mention the PTA is tops! 5 stars. The only down side that I've encountered and it has been every time (no lie) is a little rudeness from the front office and I'm being diplomatic about it. Especially when I'm friendly and kind to them and a first time parent experiencing this school. Regarding teachers,3 out of 5 were the total package, A++ the other 2 C- .

Quality of curriculum presented is directly related to the quality of teacher your child draws. Too many teachers demonstrate favoritism and try too hard to be 'buddies' instead of leaders and figures of authority. I understand communicating with adolescents can be challenging. Few strong teachers make a difference, but they are few and far between. Recognition should focus on academics and behavior role models. Feel many teachers are vicariously reliving their own adolescence. It's a shame, really. Strong students still succeed, as they would pretty much wherever they are placed.

Myself, both of my children have attended this wonderful school. The staff is exceptional. My children have received the best involved teaching and guidance. My hat is off to the staff for there caring and support to all of the kids at Hillvie Middle School in Whittier California. I would in a heart beat refer another child to this school.

This year at Hillview has been a very welcomed relief! With the exception of one teacher, all of the teachers who currently work with my son are well-versed in their subject area and have made my son comfortable as a new student. He is in the advanced math/science program and it has proved to be plenty challenging to him! The office staff has always been cordial and helpful. I am so grateful for the change. I hope they keep up the good work and continue to raise the expectations for all teachers.

I have become concerned with the quality of education that this school is currently engaging with our students. It seems that even though the leadership of the higher faculty remains intact, there have been some instances that the more inexperienced teacher will not stop to listen and share the concerns of the student's needs, perhaps favoritism is an issue? The Physical education class is not compassionate to the more obese child, and certainly ridicule in the presence of the child's peers will not resolve the issue at hand. The student become less motivated and frustrated when their role models at school do not take the time to just listen. Not every child is a story teller, there are still the child with instilled morals and truth. Lastly, the substitutes that do come in for a day should be able to teach the class and not go by assumption.

All of my three children have attended Hillview, currently one and the other two some years ago. I am disappointed in the quality of education my child has received comparable to that of my other two children 11 and 9 years ago respectively. There seems to be a lack of communication skills with the current teachers when it comes to issues of a delicate nature resulting in the defamation of the student's reputation amongst their peers. These students began to fall behind because they are not being heard. The physical education curriculum pertaining to the obese students lacks sensitivity to the issue at hand. Ridicule in the presence of the other students will not solve the problem. Lastly, there needs to be more attention applied to the Subs that come for the day, most admit they are not familiar with the subject in hand when assigned to a class.

My son is currently in his third and last year at Hillview. The school has an excellent band teacher named Mr. Florentine. This year is only Mr. Florentine's second year at Hillview but he has done an enormous amount to improve the program and the student's abilities. The school also has some outstanding P.E. teachers, such as Mr. Allard, who are very motivational and caring, yet expect the students to do their best. The administration appears to do an excellent job also. In the three years of our experience there has not been any major problems on campus. The school has a good reputation for many years now and my son feel safe at school. My son is also a GATE student. I feel that some of his teachers could challange the students more than they do, yet my son's state testing scores have remained high. After school sports programs are limited to volleyball, football, soccer, and basketball.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
