My son has the greatest teacher ever, Mrs Barla. Hats off to the PTO for being so involved with the school, teachers, and students needs.

Overall the school receives a good rating, the principal is very preocupied with test scores and the student's that can help the school's rating in this area receive the most emphasis by the principal. The Teacher's seem to be very good in spite of their leadership!

I was a little put off by the teacher at first, however that is changing, the school itself needs to watch the kids a little better, as they run and yell and hit each other more than I've seen at my other son's school. I have had to tell kids to stop because no one else will say anything.

I'll echo the thoughts about the great Kindergarten staff at this school. My daughter loves Mrs. Real! They are very caring and really do a great job of getting the kids to enjoy being at school while also learning.

My son was a student of Mrs. Killeen's in 1999-2000 and she was also very intune with him and knew exactly how to handle 'boys' his age. I was very impressed with the school the staff.

I was very impressed with Holling Hieghts. They were very intuned with my daughters education. Mrs. Killeen was an awsome kindergarden teacher she really helped my daughter understand how important school is. Great Job Holling Hieghts.
