    "New principal again this year, hope she is better than last years selection. School has gone downhill since Mrs. W left. Office staff is rude, teachers are unhappy, and new PTO if failing at best. Hope the new year sees improvements."

    "Simply put: this is a failing school in a failing district. The Superintendent's answer is always 'no,' and the Academic Dean's excuse is always 'new testing requirements.' I wish I had followed my instincts to not put my daughter in this school. Her reading test score dropped 20+ points, and her math 30+ points in just the first year. The only good thing about this school is a handful of caring teachers and the FORMER principal."

    "The teachers are wonderful but this school is going downhill. The last priniciple (Mrs. W.) was the best and I was shocked she was moved to another school. The test scores went down this year....by half! What the heck is going on with the curiculum! The priniciple needs to do something about it because I'm two seconds away from taking my child out of here. And the changes in the school too....a mess. Get it together!"

    "Major changes took place when the old principal left the school(great principal) . Great teachers and support staff but the new principal lacks leadership skills that the students and staff deserve. Because of the principal ,school goes from excellent to boarderline average."

    "Serena Hills is THE best elementary school in Flossmoor 161. The principal is a strong and effective leader. This school is extremely organized and efficient! The PTO has put together wonderful programs and both the PTO and the school administration are EXCELLENT when it comes to communicating with parents. The teachers, staff and parents are happy - everyone is smiling at Serena Hills and if you spent time here, you'd know why! I've had experience with other schools in district 161, and Serena Hills takes first place! Keep up the excellent work! Bravo!!"
