Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The leadership is terrifying in that people like that are allowed not only to be in the workforce, but around near impressionable children.



- a
Neuroticism gone wild. Also, a wild animal could serve as a better, likeable and more competent "assistant head of school."




- a
Our family loves Hilltop! Our daughter has grown both academically and emotionally. The school's teaching staff has come together to help meet my daughter's learning challenges head on. There will be no slipping through the cracks at this school. Hilltop is a warm and inviting place that challenges and supports their students.



- a
Wonderful teachers and staff. The students are given the opportunity to be heard. The upper school science program is impressive.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
As a longtime parent i have experienced almost every teacher at Hilltop. Each teacher has worked with me as well as my child toward academic as well as social growth.


Amount of homework: no rating


- a
I am not sure what is the "right" amount of homework. My children have been learning at a good pace at Hilltop and that is my main.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The 8th grade Ethical Literacy class is thought provoking. It is wonderful to see our kids work through ethical scenarios.



- a
My children have been attending Hilltop for 5 years. The new leadership has influenced academics in such a positive direction incorporating state of the art technology that really prepares children for the future. The element that is most important for me as a parent, is the absolute respect that a child finds here. Teacher contracts and politics do not come before sound instruction or focus on a child's psycho-social development. Parents are included in the entire process of the school's experience. Parental feedback is wanted, even welcomed. Many of the teachers have been at Hilltop for 15 years plus because they too believe that children come first. It is not a purgatory waiting for a public education position that would pay them much higher salaries and better benefits. There is no perfect system but Hilltop comes close, putting children first everyday. There is tution assistance available. If you are looking for a school, i recommend taking a tour at Hilltop.

Hilltop Country Day School is an amazing school with a well balanced program, exceptional faculty, staff and leadership. My children were well prepared for High School.



- a
This is why I opted not to return my child last year to the school when I learned that she was made headmaster.
