This school is awesome!! My son started this school in Kindergarten and is currently in third grade. The teachers are very attentive and want children to succeed. If children are under performing the teachers and staff make every effort to help and it shows! I am so happy to have chosen this school.

This is absolutely a horrible school. I feel bad my oldest child had to suffer through this miserable environment. The current principle is driving this school into the ground. Because this school offers the least diversity in the Issaquah School District, anyone who is different stands out. Children with disabilities are often bullied and treated poorly by the staff. Not to mention the smell of rotting garbage inside and outside the building due to the adjacent composting facility. I actually met a family whose child with high test scores living close to the boundary of MH that was offered $400 a month for "gas money" to switch to this school. The family pulled up to the school to check it out, and smelled the air, and rejected the offer. I believe the district must be desperate to artificially prove this is an acceptable school. It is not!

We love this school and especially Ms Kardong. She is the most amazing kindergarten teacher!

Not good....staff do not care about your child and all of them are always un-happy. Look elsewhere...

Maple Hills is a fantastic school with fantastic parent involvement. We are lucky to be in this attendance area.

We have had a daughter at Maple Hills for K and 1st and absolutely love this school. It is in a great community with fantastic parent support and has wonderful teachers. We have nothing negative to say about the school, it's staff or the experience so far of being a Maple Hills Eagle.Love it!

I agree with most comments, though I would like to point out that Maple Hills has undergone many changes in regards to the principal. Finally, with Mrs. Bean, the school can move forward and become one of the top schools in the district....when things are done right at Maple Hills, there's no other school like it. The community support is through the roof, and it is evident by how the campus appears.

The combination of teaches, staff, and amazing volunteers makes this school a wonderful place to work and learn!

Only thing that would be better is the math curriculum. My kids have done well here, and thrive in the partnering relationship w/teachers and parents. I've heard some negative feedback on the principal, but have not experienced it myself. Overal it's a great learning environment.

This school has gone down hill in the past two years. Experienced teachers have left and a constant rotation of principals has not helped. This school is behind in their technology, teachers do not seem motivated to take the extra classes necessary to get the active-X boards - only three classes have them! New principal seems to tout the admin line, not willing to stand up against the terrible new math program. WONDERFUL special ed teacher but the whole IEP/504 process in this school is a disaster! You have to fight like heck to get your child qualified and outside testing is a must. It makes me sad to see the recent decline and seeming lack of teacher involvement and interest.
