My children thrived in Gold Hill Elementary School. It was the perfect nurturing and educational environment and prepared them well for middle school and then high school. Fantastic school!

This school is well worth paying higher rent than living across the state line in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. The teachers are thoroughly involved in the students' education and are open with communication to parents. My daughter continues to excel here. Staying in this district as long as we can, even with a commute to Charlotte for work every day!

My children love GHES, most teachers are great. Administration really care for the students and want the best for the students. The missing component is that there is no foreign languages taught here. It does not seem to be a priority in this school district.

I love this school and all the teachers. My youngest son has special needs and every year they put him with the teacher that will help him the most. Parents are very involved. I have had both my children in this school and can't see us anywhere else.

GHES has the BEST secretary bookkeeper in the world. She pretty much runs the school, all the kids love her, the principal calls her on her house phone for mentoring, as do others from the office, and she is so sweet.

As a student who was in the Fort Mill School system since kindergarten and now a teacher myself, there is no other place I would recommend to send your children to in SC than Gold hill Elementary. The teachers, administrators, and staff are welcoming not only to new students, but parents and visitors around the clock. Other schools around the state are always stressing the importance of standards (so much that it interferes with students' true learning and students simply know they are there to meet standards, not really learn); GHES is the exact opposite. Real, meaningful learning takes place in this school. I highly, highly recommend all parents/guardians to send their students to GHES!

I wrote a review on September 1, and our experience is still outstanding. The parental involvement here is very strong, with a variety of volunteer opportunities. There were hundreds of parents at the 1st PTA meeting, at which they christened a new running track (with fitness stations) that was built using money raised through grants and donations. Now one of the gym teachers is 'jogging across America' and charting mileage toward that goal on a map of the country. And the jogging club lets kids log their own miles on the track one morning a week (one morning for each grade). They are constantly raising the bar on academics and offering kids the chance to stretch themselves such as through Math Superstars, which lets kids attempt weekly math worksheets that are one grade level ahead. This is a great environment!

After paying such high taxes in Massachusetts and getting a horrible education for our children, it is nice to find such an outstanding school system in an area of low taxes and low cost of living. And the weather is great as well! Tega Cay - Fort Mill, South Carolina is the best place to raise a family in the entire country. We have done extensive research on this.

This was our first year at Gold Hill, coming from Florida. Absolutely awesome school! I have never seen so much parent participation, and at any given time the staff is always friendly and helpful. I hear there is a freeze now, which is a bummer for the newcomers. I am glad we moved when we did.
