Hillis Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

My son is in the 4th grade and seems to like the school. A few problems with bullies but the good out ranks the bad. He always loves his teachers.

So far the school has been great. It is my son's first year, he entered Kindergarten this year.

The staff has all been really helpful, and they always have smiles on their faces. I felt really comfortable dropping him off this morning.

Just the way the staff treated me, gives me the impression he will be in good hands. Great personalities, makes a good work environment.
