My child has been enrolled in the preschool for the past two years and will be starting kindergarten there in the fall. She has grown so much in the time she's been there. The teachers are very caring and supportive. The preschoolers even get instruction from St. Hilary's art, music, gym, computer and Spanish teachers. I really like the faith partners program where my child was paired up with a fifth-grader, and they worked on special projects and attended Wednesday Masses throughout the year. I have spoken to parents of recent graduates, and their children go on to attend some of the best high schools in the area and feel prepared when they get there.

This is our first year at St Hilary and am so excited to see my kids blossom. I tranferred my 6th and 1st graders from a private non-catholic school and am so happy I made this decision. The accelerated math and reading programs have strengthened my kids skills. My first grader is reading so well since starting here at St Hilary. My 6th grader is building confidence and has gotten the extra help in core subjects that he was not given at his last school. The faculty is great and give each student one on one and the children at this school are polite and have not seen any bullying whatsoever. Love the Principal Mr Neis who makes himself available to parents. I highly recommend this school!

St. Hilary is a school that emphasizes the development of the student as a complete person. The motto at St. Hilary is 'Education for a beginning . . . Values for a lifetime,' and everyone at the school; faculty, staff and support, teach that idea at all times. Yes, the school is here to first and foremost as a place of education, but at equal level of importance is the desire to develop good people who will exceed at all levels of life.

Now that there is a new principal whose focus is on education and has implemented the full Catholic School curriculum, this school has greatly improved. The former principal did not fully implement the full Catholic School Curriculum, issued a mandate that no teacher was to give homework on Fridays and no tests on Mondays, in order to allow students to go away for the weekend, play sports, etc...he believed in freedom of expression, light discipline which resulted in many styles of dress. With the new principal, uniforms have become standard, technology in learning has been put to the fore front, homework before sports and family barbeques and the music and art programs have been reinstated on a weekly basis. The pastor of this school is very hands on and truly believes in the mission of the Catholic Schools.
