Hilton has a wonderful, caring, dedicated, and nurturing staff. They truly care about the education, advancement, and wellbeing of all of their students. The technology available to all students is amazing. The extracurricular activities are also enriching. Hilton is wonderful place to learn and grow.

I think Hilton is a great place for my children. My son Jezoar couldn't read well when he entered the 1st grade, but then he met Ms. Smith and she helped him fly high. He is also doing a superb job since he entered Ms. Fleet's 2nd grade classroom in August of 2005. Elizabeth, my daughter is in her first year at Hilton. She's in Ms. Barrett's kindergarten class and is very enthusiastic about school. I know this has to do with her teacher, Ms. Barrett. Hilton has given both of my children a sound foundation. I love this school, I love the people. Dr. Hall is a great principal who cares about the children. She calls them 'our children'. I agree Hiltonites are definitely leading lights!

When it comes to the education of our children there is always room for improvement. However, I am very pleased with Hilton as a school. I have developed a relationship with many of the teachers and staff there. The teachers take and make time to help students and parents. I think overall Hilton is a great place.

I think this school can use some great improvements all over. They need to provide better teachers, learning tools and extrcurricular activities. They need to take more pride in there students and hire people who are freindly.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
