There are so many negatives to this school that I do not know where to begin. My older son is finishing up the 4th grade and his second year at Hillside. My younger son is finishing up Kindergarten and his first year at the school. If you have bright children and would like them to be challenged so that they can excel this is not the right school for them. Both of my children were advanced when they started at Hillside but the staff here that I have encountered so far are only interested in getting everyone to pass and not meeting kids where they are. The biggest issue with the school is their discipline process of Steps. Kids get a step for the smallest things and by step 4 they expect parents to leave work and drop everything they are doing to go to the school and have a conference with the teacher. I am a very involved parent and I do my job at home. I expect teachers and staff to be able to incorporate a discipline system with rewards and consequences that is reasonable. Small issues can be handled at school and I should not be called in because my kindergartener isn't staying in hi seat during the first few weeks of school. Please help your teachers learn classroom management. On another note, my kindergartener started school already reading and since they do not have any other children on his reading level they have stopped involving him in a small reading group so he is just left flapping in the wind while they work with other students, and they wonder why they can't get him to stay in his seat. My older son's 4th grade teacher gives her class their math test to complete twice for homework before giving it to them as a graded test and had the nerve to tell the kids to memorize the answers. She also has made a habit out of crossing off math problems she thinks are too hard to teach and tells the kids not to worry about them. Way to build confidence in the kids, challenge them and prepare them for middle school. This school is a joke and I am looking to move so that I can have my kids transfer.

I love the school and staff. My son is here in his 2nd year. His teachers challenge him and he is doing outstanding. I couldn't ask for a better teacher. He had ms Floyd in Kindergarten and ms Evans now in 1st grade.

I have to say I am very dissapointed in the quality of my son's teacher. My son is in 1st grade at Hillside. When we transferred here I expected his teach to show him around. His backpack was empty for the first week of school there. I emailed the teach only to find out she just noticed he had 3 sheets of math homework still in his cubby. She doesn't check their agendas to see if they wrote their homework before sending them home or to reply to parent's messages. I dont agree with their system they use to discipline students. Basically, they make them face the wall. I wish I could transfer him back to Greenwood.
