My child is currently attending Hilltop Elementary in Wyoming, OH. It has been rated as a "top-notch" elementary school for years. Wyoming residents even pay an additional city school tax to ensure this "quality" education, on top of state school tax. Overall, my husband and I have been extremely disappointed in the system. In many ways now, we are deeply concerned for our child. Several parents have witnessed a high level of disorganization, aloofness, and safety issues in a short period of time. Administration drops the ball constantly. There have been issues with children being lost/left unsupervised during the regular school day and even after school. The after school program is a complete joke - the kids run around with no guidance and barely any supervision - yet another safety concern as a parent. The curriculum at Hilltop is not challenging and several parents have mentioned that their child is bored. My child has certainly regressed from being there and we are already looking into other options in the area. Please think twice before sending your child here.
There is one principal for 3 buildings. Though he is a great planner, he is not very child-oriented. For parents of children with disabilities, there is a continuous struggle. For the gifted child, it is a happier experience.
