About This School

Rolling Hills Public Charter School is located in Boise, ID and is in Rolling Hills Charter Lea School District. It is a charter school that serves 265 students in grades PK-9.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Rolling Hills Public Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Rolling Hills Public Charter School Reviews

School has provided an awsome environment for my kids to learn, I love this school and wish there were more like it!

We love Rolling Hills Charter School!!! Our oldest daughter was in private school last year and she was doing fabulous in the small learning environment.  We knew we wanted to transition her to public school, so we did our research on local schools.  Despite getting into two other charter schools for the 2010-2011 school year, we chose Rolling Hills for our daughter.  We knew the 20 minute drive would be worth it.  The smaller school creates a safe learning environment, which allows the students to thrive.  The curriculum is challenging and accelerated.  The Concept Boards and Shurley Method are important teaching tools.  The teachers are compassionate and dedicated to their students and to the the Harbor Method.  We love that the school offers Spanish, PE, computers and music.  The principal asks for parents feedback, wants parents involved, and truly cares for the kids.  The new school secretary is wonderful.  She makes you feel welcomed and communicates with parents via weekly email updates.  We are thankful to be part of the Rolling Hills Community.

We moved to Boise from another state and the availability of charter schools was one of our top reasons. I did a lot of research to try and find the best school for our 3 kids. This is our second year at Rolling Hills and we are very happy here. The staff is very friendly and compassionate, I have a child with a learning disability and of the 4 schools we have been in RHPCS has offered the most support in the most respectful manner. I feel confident that my children are receiving a superior education in a safe environment. As a parent I feel as though my participation and involvement in my kids education is not only encouraged but welcomed. We love this school!

Simply put, Rolling Hills not only offers an outstanding educational experience, but a safe environment so learning can freely take place.  One of the biggest concerns for parents in the public school setting is the issue of bullying.  Rolling Hills is designed to prevent and eliminate any and all kinds of bullying at every grade level.  My kids are thriving at Rolling Hills and I know they are safe at school.  What more could a parent want?

My son started 1st grade at Rolling Hills Public Charter School this 2010-2011 school year, and he is really enjoying it.  He is excelling in all subjects and is happy to go to school every day.  The administrator and staff go above and beyond the call of duty, making sure the students are safe, happy and well educated.  I would reccomend this school to a friend or anyone.
