  • We are new parents to this school, and my kids couldn't be happier. We had a completely different experience about admissions than the previous poster. Even though it was late in the year, when we e-mailed the admissions office, we promptly got a call back, and we were able to visit the school. The school holds plenty of open houses throughout the application season, and they are very open and approachable. This is a great school community with happy kids eager to learn and grow.

  • Agree with other reviewers that this school thinks too highly of themselves. Admissions office won't return calls when seeking to visit school. When finally reached say instead to "visit the website". If i'm going to spend $25k for tuition i'm going to make sure that I do more homework than just visit the website. Pretty offensive actually.

  • We looked at a lot of private schools in the area and this one had the happiest kids in all grades. The individualized attention and well designed curriculum means they are learning too. My daughter has grown by leaps and bounds at Hillbrook and we could not be happier.

  • This school is ran by snobby parents. The administration is beholden to those that contribute $30K or more beyond tuition. They do not care about each individual child. Look elsewhere before you pay for being snubbed.

  • Enrolled in the kindergarten and got dropped out before school even started just because they need a check in May for early billing in September. Without any written communications, only a "good luck" when we finally get a hold of the admission office after the summer break. What a snob school. Do more research please. You are not getting what you pay if you look at the teacher's credentials. How can I get the $2000 deposit back if we are not even attending?
