We have recently moved our 2 children into the Page Hilltop school from other school in the district as well as from another town. After our first 6 months with the new school (page hilltop), we can attest that it is absolutely the best learning experience our children have yet had. The page hilltop teachers are top notch and totally invested in our children's well being and learning. My older son, age 8, was moved to page hilltop from a previous choice out system. His grades have consistently increased from C average to averaging A's with some B's mixed in. Night and day from his earlier progress and he is now very happy to go to school each day. Page Hilltop get's it right where it counts and we are very happy with our children attending this school.
Page Hilltop is an excellent school. My son went to the school K through 5 ( now in 7th grade) and my daughter is at the school in 5th grade. We have been very happy with all their teachers. My kids are very bright and they have been challenged every step of the way. The principal and the staff create a fair, respectful, friendly and supportive atmosphere and culture and they all know the names of our children. The PTO is very active and had 85 people attend the last meeting ( outstanding for a school with about 80 kids per class). My kids participated in after school events including saxophone lessons, cooking, running club, bracelet making, chorus, line dancing and gymnastics. I rate the school 5 out of 5 stars.
I am an old student of this school, I went to it from grades k-3 and I have to say its an amazing school. The teachers were very attentive and the school's supplies and management was always at its best. I hope to go back one day and see the progress it has made.
A well run school with excellent, dedicated teachers. One of the few schools in the area that offeres a diverse student body. Class sizes are some of the lowest in the areas as well.
This school does not help children with learning disablities. They would rather you put your child on medication to help them teach the class.
School management is poor. Principle has poor communication skills. I find this school go downhill fairly quickly.
As a parent of 2 PHS students, one of whom is on an IEP, I can honestly say that both of my children are learning and feel that Page Hilltop is a safe and warm environment. There is a great deal of involvement by many parents in a variety of areas. And, so far, we have had success with my 2 kids' teachers at the school. I would definitely recommend this school -- although no school is ever perfect, PHS seems to be a place where administrator and staff work collaboratively with parents to find solutions.
If you child has any problem or learning disabilities the school does not have the money or resources to help the child. Getting an IEP is almost impossible and i had to go for outside testing to help my child. I am looking for other options for next year. School choice, private school or even moving.
I am very happy with the way my 2 kids are doing at this school.My first grader is reading very well and I was surprised she was reading a book that she checked out of the library. It was a book that was really challenging for someone in first grade! My kindergartener is doing better than he was when he first started and I am very proud of him. I am very proud of them both. I would not have them go anywhere else. Thanks to all the teachers and the aides. Page Hilltop is #1 in my book, thank you very much!
Page Hilltop is a good school. My child loves the teachers. A strong, active, PTO and AEF (Ayer Educational Foundation) are just two indicators of strong parental involvement. Current specials include art, gym, health, music, library, and Spanish. How many public elementary schools can offer all that? Parents recently advocated for preservation of these areas when funding was in question. School safety and discipline are being improved through a new bullying prevention program. There are some weaknesses such as facilities that need some updating and a math program that switches topics so quickly that my child gets frustrated. It would be great if more afterschool activities were offered, but there are some good current choices such as Kidfit, Ski Club, Gymnastics, Chorus, and D.I. All and all I feel very satisfied with Page Hilltop School. If we want to make it even better let's volunteer, or join the PTO or AEF.
This school has some excellent teachers and like any school some that should have retired years ago. The leadership in the elementary level is good. A few top Administrators loves to pass the buck.
This school wants to be so PC. that they have lost sight with,the real world.They take none of the blame but are quick to point fingers.The teachers are substanderd except for avery few whom are above the norm.If they had as many good teachers as they do rotten ones this school would be number one choice in the state.Parents beware you are the one who is responsble for your childs education in this school.
