  • I am a student here at Hillview and I think this school is wonderful. I think most of the staff works very hard. There are a few times were some teachers really dont do anything.

  • I think that the staff and administration are working very hard to bring the school up to an A+. They are a dedicated group who put the students needs first and guide them with a stern but fair hand. The students are treated with respect and I am glad my kids were able to go there.
