This school has a very cohesive, motivated staff, excellent principals, and a welcoming building and grounds. I have two children that attend this school and have thrived here! They have always had very caring and supportive teachers, students/friends who have helped them grow as individuals and learn to share, and a nurturing environment. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and regret that others have said otherwise based on one experience at the school.

This is an outstanding school. Services, curriculum, faculty are first rate. The educational team is experienced, not only individually, but as a faculty. Led by a sensitive, strong leader in principal Bates, school has connections for support services for every child. I had three go through Hillandale and attribute their success in middle school to the foundation they got at this school.

Not very friendly interactions for newcomers. Went to pick up some kids for the first time and the guy directing traffic spoke really rude to me and told me to move along while I was trying to find the kids. Then when I went to get them in the car he yelled. You will get a ticket for that for letting them get in on driver side of the car. I don't appreciate getting yelled at when I don't even know the rules. He could have kindly explained the rules more nicely instead of yelling at me. I don't appreciate that! I told him I didn't know that was a rule there and that I would put them in on the other side next time. Gee!!! Give a someone a break!!!

As a teacher, a parent, and a former student, I can say that there is no other school that measures up to Hillandale. We are a caring family, who not only has high expectations for our students, but care about them deeply and cheer their successes.

Hillandale Elem. school provides excellent educational experiences for its students and allows them to grow and excel. The staff is tops professionally and very loving and nurturing, from the principal Sandi Bates to Ms.Norma in the cafeteria staff who sings to each child on their birthday. I am a teacher who sent my child to Hillandale and I'd highly recommend our school to anyone who wants the best for their child.

Hillandale is the best school that i've been in. It makes you feel like family and a place you would like to be in. It's also a clean school and you could eat off the floors if possible.

Hillandale has great, dedicated teachers and a wonderful principal. It also has a strong and active PTA which supports the school in many ways. The children enjoy going to school, and build lasting relationships with the teachers. I often see older kids coming in and visiting teachers they had when they were young.

The Hillandale teachers are very motivated and are very encouraging to the students. They really try to tailor their instruction for the individual needs of each student. My daughter loves both her regular class and the after-school care program.

I am so pleased with the overall operation of Hillandale School. I have postponed moving, so my daughter can continue to go to Hillandale until she goes to middle school. Staff is awesome and caring. Children can certainly get a quality education here.
