    "Academically kids that are easily instructed should do fine. Don't expect anything beyond. If your child isn't doing well they will throw ZANGLE in your face and make it yours and the child's fault. Many parents I know have had this issue. The PE department is a horrible joke, your child will run laps, and not much more, in fact many kids just learn to loath PE. Ironic for a department supposed to be developing health for life mentalities. Shameful"

    "Don't listen to the other reviewers, this school has petty rules that only serve to make you realize they control you. It's full of elitists snobs and bigots the school only serves to crush your individuality. I went through horrible depression at this school like many others. Just because this school has high test scores doesn't mean you should send your kid here, have a little value for your child's psychological well being and realize that your child will get very similar grades at another school, and that most of it is based on YOUR child's intelligence and his/her willingness to learn. So in recap if you love herd mentality and hate your kid send them here."

    "We were an inter-district transfer from LMSVSD and I heard it was impossible to get into here but we did it and am so glad. This school is downright amazing. My daughter is in Honors level classes and loves all her teachers. She's also in Band and thinks very highly of Mr. Caldwell; he gets the kids motivated to practice and results are wonderful. The "zangle" system of checking student's grades 24/7 is great as is the communication from the school about upcoming events and other important info. I like how educated and caring the teachers are; they are dedicated and I truly feel that my daughter is getting an A+ education at this school. Keep up the great work, Hillsdale!"

    "This school is great. My daughter is a 7TH grader there and always comes home with a smile. All the teachers are really Nice except the music teacher Mr. Reed. She had some problems with him but there music program is great All students and kids are great and nice. Also very welcoming. Thete education is the best out of all schools so far. For hight school she will be going to Steele Canyon High School. Or Valhalla High School. This middle school is the best. She always has fum with the staff. She always tells me they are cool and have fun. School lunch is also very good as sge says it is. Enroll your child to HMS today."

    "Great experience so far. My son is now a 7th grader and getting ready to go to the Catalina Marine Institute w/the rest of the class. He is learining so much and in honors classes but is having fun while doing it and making great friends. The school is large but the kids and staff seem to be well connected. My husband and I are happy with HMS and our son is too."
