County Hills has been a great school for my kids. We've been there for many years now and my children are doing well. They love their teachers and have many friends. The school has a great sense of community and has very nice family events like BINGO and a 5K walk. The teachers and staff really care about all the kids and put a lot of effort into getting to know the parents. The school PTA has a lot of opportunities for volunteering and is always lots of fun. Great school!
Our family has had a wonderful experience at CHE. Every teacher has been extremely committed to the success of my child; the administration is responsive and always trying to be fair, and definitely committed to following the rules. Staff members seem to really enjoy the children and be at our service. The PTA is strong, raising a great deal of money to enhance the kids' experience and education - including providing wireless access for the school. It's always a bit uncomfortable to be the outsider amongst a group of people who already know each other and have worked together. But as I'm teaching my own child, when one takes the time and initiative to get to know people and let them know you, friendly working relationships with most, and great friendships with some will develop. I found that amongst the parents, teachers, staff and PTA. No matter how good the school, it is also important to remember that you are the best advocate for your child, and not be afraid to speak up when necessary. I highly recommend this school for the elementary education experience as a whole. We will be very sad to move on...
The school is phenomenol. This is our last year as our youngest is going to middle school. I was shocked to read the previous comment as the PTA has always been warm and welcoming. In fact they do an over the top job with all of their fundraisers, including their auction. The teachers and administration are extremely fair and do not cave into the demands of irrational parents
Country Hills has been a fantastic school for my children. The staff is top notch and the educational needs of my children have far exceeded my expectations. I don't agree with the negative comments regarding the PTA, as everyone has always been kind and open to new members who are willing to volunteer their time. The principal and vice principal have taken parent bullying complaints very seriously and as a previous reviewer said, they do not bend to the demands of the "irrational parents."
Country Hills Elementary is a fantastic school that I am happy to say my children attend. The school leadership is exemplary, the teachers are clearly dedicated and the overall parent involvement is amazing. We have had one of our children in that school for 10 years now and all of them have benefited from the education provided. My wife and I have always been members of the PTA and find that group as a whole to be an amazing group of parents and grandparents. I would strongly recommend this area and school to anyone.
Country Hills is a great school and has a wonderful staff and inclusive PTA. The negative review mentioning the PTA "clique" is obviously from the "blackballed" parent. Perhaps, it's time for this parent to make an apology for her poor choices and the people she has hurt vs continue to make accusations.
This is our third and final year at Country Hills as we have a 5th grader. The teachers are over the top great and truly teach with a team effort and communication with parents. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. The Principlal and Asst. Principal have a strong presence both at drop-off and pick-up and are friendly enough. If I have one complaint it is that of the PTA, which seems to be the poster child of every negative stereotype regarding PTAs. The "clique" as mentioned in a previous review is unfriendly and unwelcoming. Any effort on there part seems forced or self-serving. If you don't conform to there objective or buck the system it seems to make the mom a mark for unwarranted ugliness. At the first meeting of the year they literally didn't allow a women to speak and upon this year elections "certain" moms have been blackballed while open positions go unmanned. It's a shame and I'm sorry to say that I would stay clear. I am surprised that the Principal who seems to be a no nonsense type allows this. With all that said, if your looking for an excellent education environment for your children have it at Country Hills.
Its our first year in CHE, we have a 5th grade and a Kindergarden, we are amazed with the staff and members, teachers are great and I love the fact of how they communicate with us "parent". It has been a wonderful experience for our family, especially for our daughter who"s a kindergarden.
My name is Gabriela I attend Country Hills since Kindergarten. CHE Is a wonderful school! It is full of nice yet strict teachers and it is very safe. I love CHE
I moved my children from a private school to place them in Country Hills. It has been a wonderful experience for me and my children. The PTA is strong and welcoming to all. The principal, teachers, and staff have a great relationship with the parents The education is phenomenal. This is a fantastic school!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am new to CHE this year, I couldn't be more excited in the years to come. Everyone is so helpful and caring there. They really and truly do have every child in mind when planning and working to help that child. I love the way everyone is willing to help and the communication is amazing. Thank you to everyone at CHE! You are lucky to have this family work with your children.
Is a wonderful school, well organized, A+ academics, caring teachers, awesome family atmosphere. very greatful for my daughter to have the blessing to atend this school. Great pta!! we love it!

It boasts a wonderful Pta second to none in the area. I know next year will be just as great! Thank u Country Hills.
I had to write a review after reading the last. I am an African American Parent with 2 children. One high achiever who received a 5 on FCATS and one developmentally delayed who was challenged to do his best. My high achiever couldn't have done it without her teachers pushing her and my developmentally delayed would not have made it without the teachers at this school who showed how much they really did care. Every school has flaws. Just be a crazy involved parent at home and in school and your child will make it anywhere. I had to fight for my kids in some areas as any parent does. Color didn't play any part in the success of either of my kids in this school. New principal who plays by the rules, not by what every parent wants. Even the Assistant Principal now is African American... Good veteran teachers to look out for: Edwards, Caldwell-Dent, Rosenthal, Quintero, Renaldi. I loved this school
They say that color of your skin does not matter I bet you it does . What a year worst experience ever it keeps me up at night. I would not recommend this school to any African American mothers.
Country Hills has a great vibe but it does little to include all parents. I particularly do not like the way special need students are always left out of the loop. It's almost as if they're only there to fill out seats but not really to experience school. Good school but has a lot of work to do to include all students.
I am very pleased with this school. My child attended 1st grade. It was great, excellent, the staff help, the teacher overall. My child teacher went far and beyond to encourage no only the student but the parents involvement through her example. She even put money of her pocket by selecting web sites toward the enrichment of the child education that emprove the child skills. Reading, math and science. Unfortunately I moved and have to change school. I highly recomend this school. I was concern because some previous posting regarding which addres staff behavior towards minorities. I am glad I did not pay attentiontion to it, cause the staff, director and teacher was excellent experience. My child love this school, and me too.
I have two kids in the school. They care and that is very important!
I have 3 children enrolled, my daughter in a gifted program. We have had excellent teachers, and everyone in the office is very helpful. If I had one complaint, as someone previously stated the PTA moms are a little too 'cliquey'. They want your money but do little to envourage new members to become part of the fold.
I have 2 children at this school. One attended the PLACE program and we were thrilled with the teachers and staff. My daughter made huge improvements. We moved our other daiughter into this school in 2nd grade and continued to love it until 3rd grade where we had the worst teacher ever! The staff did everything to help us except to actually allow us to pull her out of the class. Country Hills is great as a whole, but ask around for the best teachers because some are horrible!
