    "When my family moved to the area in 2011, we loved this school, the office staff, and the principal, but over the last year my opinion has definitely changed. I must add, it has nothing to do with the principal or teachers.....esp Ms. Peters, she is TOP NOTCH and the new principal really seems to be involved with the students. The problem is the office staff. They are the rudest 2 women I have ever met. They are the first people you encounter when you enter the school and they definitely should not be representing Hilltop. On several occasions I have walked in the office and been totally ignored. Other times, when they do acknowledge me, they act as if they do not have time to "deal" with me. On one occasion, one of them answered her personal cell phone while there were several parents waiting to be assisted. It really makes the school look bad and it's definitely time for some fresh, friendly faces in the office! I based my star rating on the school in general, not the office staff."

    "My Daughter has been at Hilltop for three years. The school is absolutely wonderful. The teachers have been really great all three years and really stay involved with every aspect of teaching. I will say that some of the front office folks can be a bit snobby for my taste but that has nothing to do with the quality of education my daughter receives. I've read a few bad reviews lately but really think some individuals are a bit harder to please and expect the world. Not saying we all shouldn't want the very best education for our youth but not every teacher or program is expected to be perfect. Hope this review helps any future people thinking of Hilltop elementary. School is beautifully maintained and has top notch staff!"

    "Our son has attended Hilltop for 2 years now. My husband and I have been very pleased with the school and staff. He was involved with a couple of clubs/groups, student council and drum club, and truly enjoyed them. There were numerous other clubs that the children could be apart of, not limited to just the upper grades. The PTO does multiple fun activities throughout the school year for the kids. These 2 things combined help the kids to feel like school/learning is a safe, fun place to be! When we had a concern/question the administration and teachers were always willing to meet with us to discuss it. Our son was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD while attending Hilltop, the staff was more than willing to work with us to make sure his needs were met. The administration does follow-up calls to ensure we were happy with the outcome. Overall, beyond pleased with the school!"

    "My son has attended Hilltop Elementary School for several years now, and it has been a great experience thus far. The teachers have created a great learning environment. The clubs/organizations that the children can become involved in supplement their education well and provide great motivation to excel. Additionally, the new principal maintains an open line of communication and quickly addresses any issues."

    "My child just finished her kindergarten year at Hilltop. There were so many fund raisers, I felt like my child was being used as a salesman. In addition, her teacher was terrible. There were spelling errors on all of her bulletin boards--a person who doesn't know the difference between "you're" and "your" shouldn't be teaching. It was clear that she had a select group of students she cared for and everyone else was ignored. My child was reprimanded several times for hugging her classmates, but when she reported being bullied she was labeled as a tattletale. She went hungry a few days because one little bully continually threw her lunch on the floor but was never caught/punished. I wish we could move from this school zone for next year!"
