Excellent school. This is the best school in midland with great parental involvement. I have two children in this school and they both love every aspect of the school.

We have both of our girls at Hillander and we absolutely love it! The teachers are on top of it and care about the students. Lots of extra attention is placed on each child, so it's been the perfect match for our family! I would highly recommend Hillander School.

Hillander school is the best elementary school in Midland Texas because it teaches the basics. When a child excels in reading and writing they have the skills necessary to excel in every subject throughout their scholastic career and life. I have 3 children and all of them went to Hillander. Two have gone on to become Engineers and one a successful Commercial real estate agent. All three loved their experience at Hillander and credit the teachers and curriculum for their success. It was by far the best choice I ever made for my children.

Both of my children attend Hillander. Without exception, they both have had the most wonderful teachers. All have been experienced, patient and understanding. Their teaching skills are excellent. The support staff is also caring and on top of things.

Hillander is a wonderful school. My daughter has been attending since Kindergarten, she will be in 3rd this year. The reading skills that are taught in Kindergarten far surpass public school and the math skills in the 1st and 2nd grades are amazing. I could not have picked a better school for my children.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
