We transitioned our daughter to AHS in sixth grade from public school. The teachers are outstanding and made her feel welcome from the very first day. She enjoys going to school and feels that each day is a new learning adventure. Overall it has been a tremendous experience.

My son is 9 and has been at AHS since kindergarten. The teachers are excellent. It has been easy to communicate with teachers and administrators and my son loves the school. Would recommend highly.

I would highly recommend this school for any parent looking for an advanced curriculum and caring environment for their motivated child. I have 3 children that have attended Academy Hill and they are all well prepared for their future successes.

My daughter has been a student at Academy Hill School for the past 6 years and we have had a wonderful experience. The student/teacher ratio, curriculum, and individual attention given to each student are above and beyond what you will encounter in other schools. I would highly recommend!

Academy Hill School is the best K-8 school in Springfield, MA. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are caring, and the student development in phenomenal. I have two children in AHS and they have grown and matured so much. They are pushed at just the right amount and I blown away at how much ahead they are from where I was at their age. I recommend AHS to any new parent.

Sending our son to Academy Hill was the best decision that we've ever made. The small classroom size created an environment in which my (formerly!) shy son felt comfortable speaking up and involving himself in classroom activities. And being surrounded by other children who are curious and inquisitive has sparked a love of learning in him that I know will carry him through the rest of his academic life. As a parent, there is nothing better than watching your child shine - thank you AHS!

I send my two children to Academy Hill School, and we all love it. The small class sizes allow for individual attention, and the emphasis is on creativity and learning, not teaching kids how to take standardized tests. The school's community is very warm and inviting, with the older students looking out for the younger students. Several after-school events per year allow the families to interact and get to know each other. The teachers are all top-notch, at each grade level they really understand exactly what each child needs both academically and socially. As students enter the upper grades (it is a K-8 school) they are appropriately challenged; my kids are doing work that is at least a grade level above the better public schools in the region, and they are able to handle it well due to the foundation they received in earlier grades. Students also learn public speaking via the Good Morning Show, where they research a topic and present their findings in front of the whole school. By their eighth grade commencement ceremony, each graduate is comfortable addressing a room of over 100 people - a great skill to have. I give this school very high marks!

Great academics and wonderful, intelligent, caring teachers! Children learn life skills like public speaking and working as a team from a very young age and language arts are a focus. The school needs some work in the area of sports and facilities but the academics are extremely adventurous and far above most other schools in the area. The administration can be a little inaccessible at times, but the teachers are so good and on-the-ball that it is rare to need to go to that level! Most of the staff seems happy all of the time which makes the school a fun place for students and parents. A dress policy for the teachers (most dress professionally but 1 or 2 are a little over the top and risqu ) and for the children would be welcome. Overall just a lovely school worth every penny that seems to be looking to get even better!
