Our son recently completed his middle school years at Finn Hill. We were impressed with the enthusiasm and energy of all of his teachers. The principal is a gem; a rare find in middle school education. From English/LASS to band, all of my son's instructors were first rate. We're happy that our daughter will be attending this school as well.

My son has been at Finn Hill Middle School for sixth and seventh grade and is looking forward to spending his last year before high school there as well. His teachers have been so involved and enthusiastic and many specifically WANTED to work with middle school/junior high aged kids. The principal is very hands-on and usually eats lunch with the students. It's clear he truly loves and takes pride in his school. We've been very happy with the beautiful facility, staff, faculty and student population at Finn Hill.

Son and daughter attend Carl Sandburg. Great teachers overall and principal. The only complaint would be the common core curriculum means the teachers do not have a lot of leeway for kids of different skills.

My daughter attended Finn Hill for the first portion of 7th grade and I volunteered there. The school wasn't a good match for her so we moved her. There are some good teachers there, and the principal seems involved, but the student body is not particularly motivated to do what is asked of them academically, and expectations aren't that high. Perhaps a broader base of parent involvement could turn this around.

Finn Hill has been a great place for both my kids. My daughter learned a lot and enjoyed the honors LA/SS classes. My son is taking advantage of the 7th grade algebra. Principal Scarpelli is fabulous.
