    "We are new in this HS and we are completely impressed about the great atmosphere, the quality of the teachers and also the motivation of all the staff. Since the first day, they know perfectly my son and they personalize the deal with every single student. We can ensure that there is a closely communication between the HS and the parents."

    "It is a small learning community school which has its drawbacks. You are not aware of those drawbacks until you face the actual problem. The school assigns your child to a random house where he or she spends 2 years. The house has a set of teachers which remain with your child in that interim. If you happened to get a bad English teacher, for example, (which what happened to us) your high school student will not be able to drop this teacher and take another class. Your high school student will loose precious learning time and his or her SAT results will be impacted without any recourse. Or, your student may get a teacher that he or she do not get along with - same thing - will have to suffer for 2 years. They call it "an integrated curriculum", but in reality it is a way to provide below average teachers with secure jobs. There is at least one good teacher in every house, but there always is a below average, problematic individual. The school has to be a magnet school instead of assigning our children to be there just because we live nearby. The school may be good for 1-2.5 GPA students, because the administration is only interested in providing education suitable for CSM."

    "Hillsdale's wonderful teachers, counselors, and staff are friendly, thoughtful, and kind to students and parents Hillsdale HS's small learning communities helps students bond and makes them feel like a big family. My son liked to stay and mingle with classmates and teachers after school until they go back home for dinner. That's how fantastic this top ranking high school is; it all comes down to real human interaction. Let your son or daughter enjoy Hillsdale's warm and rigorous study environment, which nurtures our precious next generation to be knowledgeable, ambitious, friendly, healthy, and well rounded individuals."

    "Hillsdale high school is a very good school, for it has good teachers, and good academics. Teachers teach students very well, and they are willing to help in terms of need. Furthermore, teachers do support support as well. The school divide students in group, or known as houses. These are Florence, Marrakech, Kyoto, Cusco, Jakarta, and Timbuktu. Each houses has advisors, which is a main teacher that manages all his or her students. Additionally, Hillsdale teachers does really push students to overcome their limitations."

    "My son is a sophomore at Hillsdale High School this year and we are extremely happy with the school and teachers. The small learning community program made for an easy adjustment from the very small private school my son attended 1st - 8th grade."
