I have two children attending the school. What I think really distinguishes this district is that it's such a community environment. Everyone from the teachers to the aides to the administrators has seen these children grow up and is vested in their success. I also feel that great care is taken into providing the appropriate support for each child--whether it's an excellent special education program to more challenging classes for academically advanced students.

My biggest problem is with the extreme rudeness and unprofessional manner of the front office staff. As a parent volunteer, I have been made to feel like an intruder. I have also witnessed children in the office being spoken to in a way that is disrespectful and downright mean. I understand that certain policies are needed "for the safety of the children," but can't see how being unfriendly and rude helps the kids.

Great new facilties now all we need is a positive attitude that runs through the front office staff. We parents are not the enemy. If you are jaded then change careers. My children do not deserve your negative attitude in the place that is supposed to inspire them to learn.

I have a son that attends John Hill School.He has now been there for 2 years.The teachers are excellent and every subject is taught to each student's level.The special area subjects such as gym,art,music,library and many others are a great opportunity for the kids to have fun and learn.Each classroom has a homeroom parent that plans parties and gets involved in the classroom.They also have a PTA.This school is a great place to learn.

My son only went here for 4th grade (2004) and the teachers were extremely helpful to both my son and myself. The child study team went above and beyond to help with anything and everything that was needed to help my children. I cannot say enough about the kindness from the principle to the students. All was an excellent expeience.
