Hill Country Elementary is an amazing school! I transferred our 4 girls to Hill Country last year, and it was the single BEST educational decision I have EVER made! This year due to health reasons the school has a new principle, Mrs. Klien. Joining her at the helm is also a new vice principle. After speaking with her at length recently, I'm convinced that the teaching excellence will continue under the new administration. We've already become familiar with many of the teachers from last year. And so, we're confident that whomever our girls get as teachers, they will do amazingly well this year. The staff, teachers, PTO volunteers, and everyone are there for the children! The kids come first and politics takes a backseat to the needs of the children. This is a refreshing change from the way many schools are run. But the educational success of the children and their eagerness to get to and STAY in this school along with their energy in school, speak volumes to the fact that what Hill Country is doing is working, and working well!

We recently moved our 4 children from a substandard elementary school to this fantastic, child focused, results motivated, security minded school, and the results have been phenomenal! Our girls have THRIVED here. They wake up each morning eager to go to school and come home excited to tell me what they've learned, who they met, what their grades were... it's the difference in night and day! We're so thankful to the teachers, staff and administration at Hill Country.

Mr. Wert is the best of the best. This teacher is very well educated and also teaches with a kind heart. I feel that our children are safe with him and at the end of the school year our special children will have met many of their self-realized goals. All the bus drivers and aides are excellent. In particular Coach White & Ms. Roxanne keep our children well supervised and cared for. They 'go the extra mile'. When our kids get off the bus they are all smiles and look forward to seeing them every day. If you ask me they deserve a huge raise. This school and everyone who works & teaches there deserve a 5*****Star Rating!!!

My child attended kindergarten, 1st, and 5th grade at Hill Country. It is a wonderful school! The staff is incredible. They are truely concerned with your child's education. There is wonderful parent/teacher contact, both when your child is doing great and not so great. I'm tremendously happy with my child's education from this school. If only every elementary school could be this great!
