This school is lacking in every way. Horrible principals. They only survive a few years or so
We have had an exceptional experience. My child is in all honors and advanced classes with teachers that truly engage, challenge, and uplift the students. My daughter comes home talking about what she is learning and can apply it to our visits to museums, conversations with adults and her peers, and has better understanding of current events with her newly-learned contexts. It's a dynamic city school with kids who range widely in ethnicity and socio-economic background. I wish Hill had more choices for after-school programs, but we love being part of this school which has worked so hard to improve its reputation. I have had a lot of interaction with administration there. Principals and staff have always known who my child is and have taken the time to get to know her. We love Hill. I wish people would cut it some slack and not judge based on the high minority enrollment. The school is clean and beautiful (wood floors, fire places in some of the classrooms, elegant tilework and architecture). I consistently recommend Hill for middle school to others.
Horrible school! My son was bullied ALL three years while he was there. Some of his teachers were great and you had a few that really didn't care about the children. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Albert H. Hill Middle School is not a terrible school, but not too great either. I think that there are way too many tests taking place at this school. It seems to be more test oriented than learning oriented;but its not their fault. I think thats a kind of mandatory system. The school also seems to be somewhat disorganized. For a couple of days, my sister had been attending the wrong classes. Why hadnt the school faculty picked up on that earlier?
I am currently in the 8th grade at ahh!!! i love this school ive made great friends.Great teachers great kids great principal great school!
This school is fantastic...if your child is in the honors or advanced courses. The special ed philosophy is an inclusion model and can only be facilitated in the core classes, where a majority of the bussed students end up. There is an enormous disparity between the two groups, which fosters resentment of certain students by academic core students. My child has special education needs but is also gifted so he got thrown in academic core in order to receive services. He's absolutely miserable there and is constantly harassed. Coming from Mary Munford, I expected a lot. One of his teachers is exceptional, several are good, one is appalling. The administration is very nice, but we won't be returning.
I have a son in 6th grade at AHH. He loves it and it has been a good environment for him. The administration is awesome. Mr. Kight is very responsive and involved and does not tolerate poor behavior. The school building is beautiful and well taken care of in all of it's splendor. There is a core group of involved parents. The teachers are excellent as well. I would like to see more parents involved. I would certainly recommend this school highly to any parent considering middle schools.
I really like this school.I went here from 6th to 8th grade and I met so many new people and had so many oppurtunities!
I went here and I can say to all of you that sending your child here will have a GREAT IMPACT on their life like it has mine....and i'm a sophmore now!! Pluse Mr. Kight is GREAT! MY FAVORITE PERSON IN THE WORLD!! He is more than a Principale his is a friend to me and to many others who he has had a great influence on. I have sored to higher heights because of him and i will continue to do so as I grown and learn.
I have a 7th grader at Albert Hill, and over all we have been very pleased. They are lucky to have a fantastic principal in Mr. Kite, and most of the staff and teachers are wonderful. Our only complaint last year was the lack of much art, but they have really ramped that up this year. The administration really seems committed to making this a top notch school.
We were concerned about the arts and humantities program also. However, this year the school has hired an outstanding art and band teacher, added a drama teacher, and expanded the orchestra and harp program. Our students will also have the opportunity to participate in the art program at the Visual Arts Center after school.
My child is so happy! Teachers are the best and the atmospere is warm and welcoming. Instruction is top notch. We have sent two children there and we are sending our third! We are so glad we were accepted this year. This should be the model for all public schools!
Worksheets,worksheets,worksheets. that's basically it. Teachers teach the students the big test.
Small school size, caring staff and wonderful principal who takes time with parents and children.
