We moved our family to be closer to Hill and cannot imagine being anywhere else. My kids have always had positive experiences at Hill and when we did have an issue it was resolved quickly. There are always people in life we won't prefer but those are everywhere! Ive never seen any teacher or staff treat the children differently based on race or economic status. We love it here. Its a wonderful school family to be a part of.

Also, 100% agree with the teacher who posted on Posted July 29, 2013.. It's not a perfect place, but this type of behavior is unacceptable.

I left this school because I notice some of the staff favors children who are of race or even there economical level. I didn't want to be part of a school like that.

I am so happy that my two girls are at Hill. My oldest daughter has had some issues adjusting in general, and I have had nothing but positive interactions with the teachers and the school leadership as we work together to sort it out. Thanks to their caring guidance, she is happy, settled, and growing more confident by the day. I can't say enough good things about this school.

My daughter has had a rough start this year. She started kindergarten this year and we found out she is ADD/ADHD. Her teacher has been on top of this problem and has been great with her. She, I know, is a handful but her teacher has been able to work with her and I think she may make it after all. Thanks for all your patience, Mrs. Loskorn.

The new principal Mr. Day is AMAZING!!!! He not only knows pretty much every single kid by name, but he makes a point to talk to all of them everyday. I give him and the school 5 stars!

I have two children that attend Hill, and I have been pleasantly surprised with this school. As a parent who was heavily weighing homeschooling or charter school (can't afford private), I am very happy I chose this public school. The teacher's have ALWAYS been more than willing to listen to parents and help the student. The principals have exceeded my expectations with their leadership and dedication. And my children are progressing academically.

My daughter has gone to hill since 2nd grade and we are moving out of state now before she starts 4th. The teachers have been great, and more the administration has been absolutely fantastic. My daughter is definitely a social butterfly and has seemed to get to everyone's hearts while being there. She has had better grades and been happier here than any other school. I love this school and hate to leave before she finishes her elementary years, but just wanted to say - good job 2nd and 3rd grade team and office staff. We will truly miss you

I have had 3 children go to school at Hill and for the most part was very happy with the teachers, principal & discipline. Since the new principal alot of things have changed drasticaly. The teachers are more intense, not as much friendliness. There is alot of tension between students and teachers where in the past there used to be kindness and patience. The acedemic level has gone down alot. I have compared papers from my two oldest to the ones that my youngest gets now, there is a temendous difference. Not as much writing as there used to be. No projects like there used to be. I don't know if it is because of the demographics have changed or economics...but it's not like it used to be and it saddens our family alot. My older kids notice it when they visit.

My daughter attended Kindergarten at Hill this year. We moved 2 months before school was out to Mansfield. I was extremely pleased with Hill. As a mom with a Kindergartener going to public school for the first time, I was very nervous and very skeptical. I couldn't have been more pleased! Her teacher (Ms. Evans) was incredible!!! My daughter learned so much in such a short amount of time. She handled those kids so well, she was tough but also tender hearted. She was excellent at teaching each child at their own individual level. She really cares about those kids. Parent involvement was incredible. School spirit was exceptional. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to move to Arlington or transfer. By the way, we were a transfer student and we were never treated any differently from those who weren't. Go Highlanders!!! We miss you!

I would like to respond to the comments from different parents stating they were outsiders or outcast because they are transfer students. My daughter is a transfer student, and we have never felt excluded. We even moved here from another city and knew no one. I do agree that the TAKS test are out of control. Too bad our state feels one test is more important than the overall education of our children. And, too bad our teachers have to endure it also. As for Hill we have been very pleased. Great teachers, involved parents, and great kids. Yes, it has it's problems, but don't they all.... even the private

My son will be a 5th grader at Hill next year. He has been there since 2nd grade. It may just be the way things are now a days, but it seems they work toward the TAKS test a bit too much. I am sure it's that way at every school. His every day course work is a bit repetitive. He came from a small private school where advancing your knowledge was stressed more. Seems at Hill they grind the same things into you to be ready for the TAKS. All in all a good school. It seems easier if the kids go to school with the children in their own neighborhood. Bit of the outcast treatment.

As a grandparent of a transfer student I had to reply to the negative message I read regarding transfer students. There has been no distinction made because of the transfer. The teachers and the office staff have all been wonderful. My grandson prefers it to the private school he attended at one point. I give Hill top marks for the education he is receiving as well as the after school science class he is in.
