    "After 1.5 years with the new principal, Hill has become an entirely different school. To start with, almost all of the staff has turned over. The new administration is primarily concerned with putting "yes" men in place that will agree to his mandates, no matter how outrageous the order. Teachers are leaving in droves, and if teachers wanted to stay, they are forced out of the building and district through nonrenewal of their teaching contracts. Parents, you will be impressed and amazed by the principal's ability to convince you to come to his school. Take note, he is a wonderful salesman and a terrible, terrible school leader. The people who work for him are leaving as soon as they can, and that's the main reflection of his leadership that you should be concerned with. Hopefully in a few years a new leader will be put in place that can restore Hill's place as one of the premier middle schools in Denver Public Schools. Until then though, avoid this sinking ship!"

    "We moved to Denver a year ago and he was new to Hill Middle School, as he just started 6th grade this year. All year we have been dealing with my son being bullied by different kids in school. I want to make you very aware of what is happening. He has been teased for being a bigger kid. He has had students offer him a snack and then tell him they rubbed it in their pants once he took a bite. He has had a student push the chair out from under him in the auditorium. He has been pushed into walls and down stairs. I know about some of these issues, as I was witness to a couple of them. I have attempted to call the school, left messages, and even spoke to one staff member on one occasion. Nothing has been done. My son has told me he has filled out so many reports he is just tired of writing them. My son, who is only 11 years old, was overheard saying he was going to commit suicide. He said no one at the school would care or miss him if he did. He wasn't just talking about the students. He feels the teachers and all administration wouldn't care either. In an age where bullying is so prevalent, I am befuddled at how this can go unnoticed even after the parent (me) has reached out."

    "We held an 8th grade assembly last week to discuss the requirements for Continuation. Students must have 95% attendance, a minimum 2.5 GPA . What about all the kids who pass 8th grade? Don't they deserve to celebrate their accomplishment. New principal does not treat all kids fairly. Only cares about his numbers. Teachers however are terrific."

    "The new principal is attempting to clean house regarding faculty in staff, and is bringing in under qualified "teachers" to replace experienced staff. As a community member, I've witnessed the Denver police repeatedly on campus, and would not feel comfortable sending my student to Hill."

    "This school has gone downhill since the new principal has come into leadership. The school caters to specific students and is more worried about attendance/disciplinary rates, rather than student and faculty morale. Just for the record, I am not sending my next child to Hill."
