We have two kids in Hillendale and couldn't be happier with the education they are receiving. The teachers are very motivated and exceptionally qualified. Their love of teaching leads to kids who love to learn and can't wait to get to school everyday. I don't know of any school that has more parental involvement than Hillendale, many times there is a waiting list of parents wishing to volunteer their time for a class trip or project. Mr D the principle is great with the kids and also deals well with parents and our concerns.

School is excellant in having quality staffing that works well with each other with strong leadership qualities. Their love for their job and students is quit evident and reflected back from the students and all who are around. Knowing what the best academic program your child needs is one of their strengths. Whether your child is special needs, has a learning disability, average, or gifted, they help your child achieve their best in all areas of life - emotional, social, help build character, and academics.

I love this school. My son who has never loved any school (he has been to four) loves this school and its staff. We are having a wonderful time. The kids there also are very nice and kind children. We love the staff from the principal to the janitor. There are always to help with ANYTHING.

The quality of the education at Hillendale Elementary School is outstanding. The parent organization is also remarkable. The parents and teachers work together really well. We have been very pleased.

Academics are great, which is largely a reflection of the high quality of the teachers. With one exception, all of my children's teachers have been exceptional. The one exception was adequate, but just wasn't at the same level as all the others (who set a very high bar). Extracurricular activities are very good although the music program has been somewhat disappointing. Our children moved to Hillendale from one of the other elementary schools in the Unionville school district as a result of redistricting. The other school had a much better music program. My sense is that the difference really results from differences in the personalities and styles of the relevant teachers. Great band program. Level of parent involvement is phenomenal. Overall, a great school.
