My girls love Ross Hill. The class sizes are small and my girls get more one on one attention. I've never had a problem with the staff everyone is very friendly. Many schools in Detroit have bad kids that's from these parents not doing their job, can't blame the staff at Ross Hill. Only school my kids have went to where they give kids money for Christmas very personal with their students.

Ross-Hill academy is a wonderful school. My daughter is in 1st grade and she absolutely loves it and she loves her teacher. She just started attending this school year and so far so good. The teachers communicate very well with the parents. A couple days ago i was picking up my daughter from school and i overheard some older kids yelling and cursing outside... an authority figure came out and told the kids not to speak that way at school and not to hurt the school's image. Those students were told to leave.. i really appreciated that because my daughter is only 6 and that shows me that the school is very disciplined and they dont allow that kind of behavior

Rha needs a lot of improvement in staff & students.My daughter has only been a student there for a month & have been harrassed by the students that has been there,this is everyday,i've spoken to the dean about this situation on various occassions and still no results, my nieces are new as well&has had the same problems.Why is the staff takng up for the older students and allowing them to bully the new students,they have threaten them & i heard them threaten my daughter.This has got to stop,i will go further if it doesn't,like to the news,etc.My daughter &nieces are just trying to get their educaton so they can move fwd,how can they when they're being harrassed everyday & nobody is doing anything? I have requested a meeting with the parents by speaking with the dean,& i haven't heard back yet! improvement needed

Ross-Hill is a good school academically. However, there are no team sports. My son is very good in basketball and will have to leave Ross-Hill in order to play where the scouts can come. It's unfortunate because he has spent his entire Middle School years at Ross-Hill

I think RHA needs a lot of improvement. When I first enrolled my child in the high school it was for the curriculums that they advertised like Cosmetology, Healthcare, Designing. These were things that my child was interested in so I moved her from the high school she was attending and placed her at Ross Hill. Ross Hill had none of those programs and I was very disappointed because my daughter could have stayed where she was. This school is a joke and I did remove my daughter.

I appreciate the staff and atmosphere at Ross Hill under Dr. Williams. How Ross Hill each year expands into a K-12 campus. The staff has been consistent...remaining over the years from my grandson's K now he is in the 10th grade and most of the same teachers are still there--ethnically and there are several men teachers.

Yes I do agree with that parent that the Ross Hill Academy is full of it they talk a good game about educating our children giving them more criteria and more homework to keep them up with todays society when all the do is give you more of a headache about there expences. I was looking forward to a different level of learning for my child when it was like keeping him in public high school now don't get me wrong I believe that the elementary part of Ross Hill is doing so good but what we do with our children when they get in older and want to attend the high school part I hope they get it together. Speaking on when you can recieve a report card for your child they either don't have the paper to print on or they haven't printed them up

RHA was a disappointmnet.The school talk a good game, but had little to offer. The free after school programs were not meaningful, it is comparable to watching your children play on the playground. They do offer music classes that was a plus however, they do not have their own gym and the children had to walk to the Franklin as well as most of their field trips. I would not recommend this school.

I, think Ross-Hill is a very disciplined and educational school. My children came from the public school system and it is a better change. My children are fairly new to the school but so far so good. Tisha Gillam

This isa an excellent school. The teachers are great. My son had previous behavior problems but when he started Ross Hill his teacher kept in constant contact with me as I requested and my son has had no problems and his grades are great. He enjoys going to school now. His teacher is great. The school has a very positive staff which I have found to be reflected in the students. They are really big on parent participation and I love the fact that the teachers must follow the dress code as to set an example for the students. The school is great. I also like the educational style used by the school its very positive nothing negative about it. I Love This school.
