As I read through the reviews posted by other parents and staff I'm afraid I will have to beg to differ. I am a parent who chose to remove my children from Hill . All the reasons listed on the other reviews were all the reasons we chose Hill for our children, the family atmosphere and the excelled education. But what happens when your child is struggling? It took a FULL SCHOOL YEAR to have our child finally tested for LD and had to switch schools to receive the help needed. This was just due to ADD, she just needed help in math. So please parents keep in mind, this school is not your family, you are your child's family and true advocate. HILL is great, if your child is perfect. And also watch your child for depression , Hill is a little clicky.
I am a very proud parent of a student at Hill Elementary, a year round school. I am so excited my daughter was accepted at this school and is excelling in all areas of her education. Thanks to a wonderful teacher and school staff.
My son attended Hill from Kindergarten thru 5th grade. We have since moved to Florida. He received since a wonderful education at Hill and they were able to keep up with his advanced placement. My 13 year old is now in 10th grade instead of 8th and it is because of the wonderful beginning he recieved from Hill staff. P.S. Mr. Harper the principal is really the best you will ever find....God should make every principal like him. (Colt's mom)
I just love this school, it kids all seem very happy here! I am a parent, who would recommend this school of choice, because it prevents the children from getting burned-out! I have both of my children here, and it has been a very rewarding experience for both of my children and myself. I just with that all the schools were like Hill, but you can't get everything! The staff is so caring and family like, it just makes you feel warm & cozy at this school.
I would highly recommend this school. Both of my sons have attended this school and it has been a positive experience for both. The entire staff is easy to work with and genuinely care about the children. My oldest son attended a traditional elementary school at first, but flourished with the year-round schedule. He had much less burnout than in his previous school. They have many activities that the children can choose to participate in after school as well. Tracy Yencer
Hill School is by far the best! My son has attended since Kindergarten and unfortunatley this is his last year at Hill. This is sad because Hill's Principal, teachers and staff are the most caring and wonderful there is. They are great role models, educators and friends to all the children. This school is a family and has a family atmosphere that we will greatly miss! We just wish they would have added 5-12th grade onto the Hill Year Round School building so that we dont have to leave. This is the best school you can enroll your child in and the best opportunity for a positive and strong educational experience. -Ms. Sapien(Colt's mom)
Hill Elementary school is a wonderful choice of school. It is a Year Round school which means that the required school days are spread over the months of August-June. I have found that this prevents burn-out in students and staff. Parents have the option of sending their children to school during the intersession-break for additional enrichment activities centered around a theme or their children may stay home. The staff at Hill work very hard to help every child succeed in social and academic areas. I am a teacher at this school and I have not found a more dedicated staff (principal, secretaries, custodians, teachers, para-professionals, cooks, & playground supervisors) than the cohesive network found at Hill Elementary. I strongly encourage you to become a member of the Hill School family. I know that you will be glad you did! Sincerely, Mrs. J. Berhe
