I have noticed there are no current reviews of this school. So, here is a new one. My oldest daughter is currently in her second year (7th grade) at Hill. She is part of the STEM program. She got into a magnet school but loved this school so much that she declined their offer. She has done remarkably well in her classes which are all Pre AP. She has made many friends and has joined clubs. Her overall experience has been a good one. The school counselor is always very helpful and warm. The office staff are also warm and welcoming. I have been there when the classes are changing to pick up my daughter for doctors appointments and I have never heard the kids being disrespectful or the teachers being rude with the kids. All of my daughters's teachers have been very nice and really work to help the kids be successful. The principal, Ms. Aguilar, has made really great improvements. My youngest daughter has decided she wants to be part of Hill's STEM program as well, choosing to apply there instead of Longfellow. Past reviews may have been bad but this school has come a very long way. Give Ms. Aguliar and the teachers and staff at Hill a real chance before writing them off.

The state that Hill is in now embarrasses those that attended it when it actually was a good school. I attended Hill from 2001-2003. The principal was Rex Cole. He really cared about the students and their academic and professional development; thus making sure a lot of programs such as PSAT and Multimedia classes existed for the students. I was in all of the programs and was really fond of the Multimedia class; in which I was one of the anchors for the morning news show that aired every morning for students to get daily news, historical events, and other information. The teachers were very caring and actually taught when I was there as well, and my classmates were well behaved for their ages. Nowadays, with my sister going there, Hill is a school I would never ever send my child to if I had a kid. The teachers don't care. Mr. Sosa acts nonchalant. And no programs as the ones I mentioned do not exist at the school today. They even had the nerve to sell the equipment the Multimedia class used (keep in mind we had a full studio for live recording), and I have not seen where the money has gone towards. In all, the school shutting down is no surprise to me at all.

Hill is a very excellent school. Especially mr.Sosa he is a very helpful principle. He has gotten all of us to be very caring about our grades. On the other hand the reason the school gets so many bad review are because of some of the students. Not all of the students are misbehaving but if they do we all get punished for their mistakes.

The new principal at this school is trying really hard to improve this school. But, I don't see it going anywhere. The majority of the teachers can be as bad as the kids. I have witnessed how they talk to some of the students and believe me, some are as 'thuggish' as the kids. This year has already had many fights in the hallways and during lunch.

This is my child's 1st year at Hill and she loves it. The new prinicipal has really been helpful and I hear that he's getting things done thats been promised by others for the past 10 or 15 years. Kudos to Mr. Sosa. I was disappointed with the PTA turn out, (more parents should be involved), I believe we had more people from the community (retirees) than we had parents. Parents please take the time and get involved, the meeting are only once a month for an hour and I know your child is worth every minute of it. Working Better Together is our theme this year. look forward to seeing more activite parents.

There's a new principal this year and parental involvement. The community is starting to support this school again. Give it a chance. It can only get better. It will take a little time, but all are excited about the possiblities.

This is our first year in DISD , coming from a small private school. We have been pretty pleased overall. We like the new principal, Mr. Sosa. He seems to be taking charge of the school again. We also have some involved parents which are needed just as much as a good principal. The school is getting some TLC this year. I think we could see some great improvements. Let's continue to stay involved and let our kids and teachers know we care.

My daughter is in the 7th grade here and so far this year the bad has outweighed the good. Some of the teachers' she has had(before I had her switched) are absolutely not fit to be teachers', they have actually told me that they don't have to like or love their students and they continue to start their class off each day with a negative(not positive) attitude. These kids deserve a good attitude and teachers' that do like each and every student. After all, while these kids are there, the least these teachers' can do is treat our kids like they are theirs'. I'm sure before they became teachers' they took some kind of oath vowing to just that. After all, they are being paid plenty of money...So I say to some of the teachers' here(not all)CHANGE!

My son has just enrolled in the 8th grade. Several of the teachers here are excellent; especially the science teacher, the keyboard teacher and the social studies teacher. Unfortunately, the school is one of the most disorganized environments I have ever seen. We have left messages attempting to contact the others without success. The traffic pattern is a nightmare. I am not optimistic about the future of these students or of this school. Yet, short of $10,000 in private tuition, where do you go?

Unfortunately, my son is in his second year at Hill. I give some of the teachers credit as they would contact me from time to time to let me know about my son's progress. The office staff never knew anything and I would go in circles trying to find out information. Reaching teachers/coaches is impossible. I left several voicemails and I have never received a reply. If you want your child to learn and enjoy it...don't choose Hill.

I think that this school is looking really good this year.I went to PTA Night on Monday and alot of improvements were discussed.Instead of complaining about the school. I think that's it our jobs as parents to help improve the quality of our kids schools & the surroundings.

It is unbelievable how fast this school has gone down. Language Arts and TAG classes are overcrowded and the reading program has been dismantled. I would recommend not sending your kids to this school. How sad.

Things can't get worse. The atmosphere in this building is so bleak. Everything is disorganized, students are disrepectful, dress code is obsolete, teachers are overwhelmed, and the visitors are not welcomed.

I have had two other kids go through Hill, but I can't beleive the things that are happening this year. My child comes home almost daily talking about the fights and how the students didn't get in trouble. Also, he constantly talks about how students cuss and disrespect the teachers and nothing happens. Their school schedule has changed about seven times this year. The tardy bell is flexible and doesn't ring the same every day. The school is absolutely filthty. The drug use is higher than ever. It is unbelievable what is going on there and I am happy that I have no more kids to go there and I am seriously considering removing my daughter for next year.

I go here unfortunately. this is one of the worst schools in all D.I.S.D.It hadn't been so bad until this year with the new Principal Ms. Contreras.She has turned the school into a disaster and alot of programs have been cut off like the media center and certain sports. Teachers aren't so happy with the new principal either sometimes the teachers don't even have a printer to print us our work for the day. They have had to reduce their usage of paper because of necessity. Almost every day my I have a substitute for at least one of my classes. I personally think that the principal needs to put education in priority to everything instead of trying to reduce liberty at school. This year we are not even allowed to go out in the field for lunch.
