Fisher Hill School is filled with capable, friendly staff and happy students. The atmosphere is always welcoming - the very essence of a community-oriented institution. I've been in its hallways 2 or 3 times per week for the last two years, each time a pleasurable experience. My grandchildren love it and look forward to going there each day. Furthermore, their steady increase in reading, writing and arithmetic skills is proof that learning can be fun. Thank you, Orange, for providing such a warm, caring classroom environment.

My daughter is in kindergarten at Fisher Hill. She absolutely loves it there. Ray Sharick is a wonderful principal. He greets the students by name as they arrive in the morning. I feel very welcome every time I go into the school. Parents are welcome to have breakfast with their children and I've been welcomed into her classroom every time I've brought her to school (she usually takes the bus). All of the staff is very friendly. There are a lot of things for the students to do after school hours as well- my daughter has been in the afterschool program and has been to Bingo for books, a marionette puppet show, and a writing box project. Any concerns I've brought up have been addressed immediately. I can't say enough good things about the atmosphere and I'm so glad my child is starting her years of schooling at Fisher Hill.

Fisher Hill is (in my opinion) the best school to send a young child. They have such a wonderful and caring staff. I always feel at home when I walk through the doors. The staff is very welcoming and take the time for the parents. My son will be moving on to Dexter Park next year and I will definitely miss the Fisher Hill atmosphere. Dexter Park is great as well, but there is just something about Fisher Hill that makes me very confident about my child's school. Hats off to Fisher Hill!!

I am very pleased with Fisher Hill school,they have a staff of wonderful teachers and aides. The principal Sheryl Brault is great. I have to say I am very sad that my youngest child will be leaving Fisher hill this year and moving on to Dexter Park. I give this school on the a scale of 1 to 10 a definite 10.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
