    "We have three students at SHS, and have been there for 9 years. In spite of two retirements from administrators, an inevitability at any institution, the school has continued to run smoothly and beautifully. Our children are constantly engaged by incredible teachers, swept up by whatever they're currently learning, have evolved as people and students each year, and impress other parents, and even educators, when they meet new people. It's not unusual to hear, "Where do your kids go to school?! They're so mature!" SHS focuses upon building a love of learning, and that's no mere platitude. They reward children who ask "what happens if...?" They encourage follow up and independent study. And they provide many opportunities for children to stand before their peers and share their knowledge. Every student performs in front of fellow students and parents multiple times per year, and by the time they graduate, they are completely poised in front of audiences. There is always going to be some lemon squeezing amongst parents, but by and large, the complaints I have, and my peers have voiced, are negligible when compared with the exceptional level of education overall."

    "The seven Hills School was a second home to my Children who spent 8 years growing up there. Something started to go wrong when lower school head retired last year. This year whole school head announced his retirement as well. There is a lot of false advertising about this place, and while it looks appealing on the outside, the inner content is lacking and insufficient if not fraudulent."

    "Seven Hills has been a dream for my preschooler! He loves coming to school every day. His teachers are very caring and talented. His confidence, speaking ability, enthusiasm for learning, and kindness to others has all grown noticeably over the past few months."

    "After 9.5 years as a dedicated parent and volunteer with my two kids dreaming of graduating with their friends from preschool, the middle school head and a teacher in middle school began discriminating against me as a single Mother and bullying my Daughter for not understanding some homework. They suddenly introduced iPads to replace ALL books and expect the students to be responsible and basically figure it out...? For $25,000 a year? No thanks! My child developed anxiety doctor diagnosed due to this schools treatment of her, and so they accused me the parent, of breach of contract, and cancelled both my kids mid year! They do not care for Children! They are not child centered! They do not offer due process or equity & justice! A sad waste and huge loss for our family."

    "Both our children go to Seven Hills. The school did make some changes to favulty(see note below). I can't imagine a place better suited for our kids. They are holding firm at limiting enrollment. My son now in first has 18 in his class with two teachers. My daughter has 20 in her fourth. I do wish the school offered more than Spanish and I'd like to see a stronger sports program, but it hey did just build a new middle school and a beautiful new gym. It's a great place where our kids are learning, building confidence, and growing only in positive directions."
