I had children at this school last year. I pulled them out mid year because they were not willing to resolve issues concerning bullying. I was asked to wait til after count day. My children are not a number nor a dollar sign. That just confirmed my decision.

My eldest daughter is in the kindergarten class this year at Hillsdale Preparatory School. After considering the other area schools, we chose Hillsdale Prep and have been thrilled with our experience at the school. We love the small class sizes that allow for individual attention. I can not say enough good things about the kindergarten teacher. She works with the parents and students on every level to help each student achieve their academic potential. All of the staff is dedicated to making the school the best that it can be. The parent council is a wonderful group of people who tirelessly labor to provide the school and students with needed financial support. They truly make the most of their resources and the academic success proves it.

My review is don't waste your time there meap is high because they only except children that don't have learning disability's might want to make sure your child is enrolled everyday because if they don't want your kid in there school they will tell you there on a waiting list. I know.

If you are thinking about putting your child in the Academy, stop and look at this school first. It uses a similar curriculum yet has none of the bad aspects of the Academy. Oh, this is a strict school, but unlike the Academy, it is fair. How well your child does, and not what you contribute to the school, will determine things. We put two children through the Prep school, and they where straight A students. Had a real passion for learning. The only bad thing we can say is we wish they went past 8th grade.

As a mother of 3 beautiful daughters, I have to share about our school of choice: Hillsdale Prep! We have been there since it's inception several years ago. The atmosphere is gentle, loving and most of all respectful! We recently were ranked among the highest scoring meap test scores in the county. If you're looking for small class sizes where your child gets all the attention he needs, then Hillsdale Prep is the school for you!

Hillsdale Prep offers an excellent Classical education in a safe and supportive environment. My children love their teachers, are challenged academically, and feel the support of staff and families. We are thankful for this opportunity.

I love this school. A year and a half ago I was introduced to Hillsdale Preparatory School. I was indecisive rather I wanted to home school or send my son to school. After reviewing the info from Hillsdale Preparatory. I decided on the school. Since then, my son has gone through kindergarten and into first. He is learning Latin (which is something I really couldn't teach him). The student teacher ratio is awesome! I would recommend this school for anyone who wants a more of a one-on-one teaching experience.

I love Hillsdale Prep! We offer the best education for your child in Hillsdale County. I love to teach the classical curriculum and place an emphasis on teaching students to become great leaders in the community by being respectful, honorable, and also just being a good citizen. We have an excellent Music program and I am looking forward to watching the school continue to grow! I am proud that even my students, even in Kindergarten, have the opportunity to study latin. Having small class sizes allows me the opportunity to reach every student in a very personal way!
