There is not enough student assistants to help watch over the kids. It's the second month of school and my kid is still doing trace-sables, letters, colors. Things he already did in daycare. He should be sounding out words, adding/subtracting right now. The principle does not work with parents well and does not give the student a chance to work out their behavior problem before calling the parent to pick up their child. Their disciplinary strategy sucks and the school needs to learn how to handle their students instead of sending them to the office by nick-picking at everything an average 5-year-old does. Kids are going to push, shove, and hit. If there is no blood or TEARS involve, do not call the parent to leave work. Yes they need to sit in a corner somewhere, but don't take them out of school and harm them by missing the opportunity to be taught the numbers/letters they already learned when they were three. Separate the kids for a day when they don't get along. They are going to forget about it and be friends the next day. My 5-year-old is not a fourth grader who can handle kids being mean and bullying him. A teacher and principle SHOULD know that.

Wonderful, wonderful teachers, dedicated, warm, knowledgeable. I am able to say all this after having my kid in a private school/ kindergarten for a few years. Multicultural environment, truly diverse, discipline, great leadership, safety. My child has learned that the shelled environment in which he was in the private school is not the real world. He managed to make LOTS of friends at Fox Hill and, very important, he is happy and thriving, both emotionally and intellectually.

We just moved into this County and my fourth grade son had a hard time relocating. He has only been at Fox Hill for 2 months and he occassionally comes home w tears saying that the kids laugh at him and call him "carmel" because of his skin color. I'm not trying to cry racism....but if the shoe fit

We love Fox Hill. The teachers are passionate about teaching, there is a rich diversity here, and there are many affordable enrichment activities from which to choose. There is an option called COMPASS which integrates third, fourth, and fifth graders of different abilities. The International Baccalaureate program is being started this year as well. We have watched my son come out of his shell here and we've become part of a larger family. He started Fox Hill in Kindergarten, and this is his last year. We will miss it very much. Come to Fox Hill and get involved!

I love Fox Hill. This is my son's last year and it has been a good experience. The teachers keep the standards high and there is a general feeling of accountability for the child's progress through the grades. The administrators are available and approacable. It is hard to tell the difference between the Inquiry students and the regular class rooms. Love this school and will miss it.

My child loves this school. I was initially down because I wanted my child to attend Crooked Creek(score of 10). I have to pass it to get to fox hill. However I have been pleased. They are a diverse school, and have adjusted to meet the needs of all students( white, black, and hispanic). One highlight for the school are the after school enrichment programs there are tons, and they're highly affordable.

My children love Fox Hill. The principal is the best ever and even the after school AYS director is great. Fox Hill is number 1 in my book.
