    Mr. Callaway sets the expectation that together we can do it all. I appreciate his care and involvement. We had wonderful experiences this year with 1st grade teaching staff as well. I'm proud to have my children at this school.

    We have been extremely happy with Indian Hills. We were apprehensive at first about our daughter attending public schools after she had been in a private pre-k school. But we have been pleased with the teachers and our daughter s progress at Indian Hills. I was so impressed with the principal. I have never seen a principal stand in the middle of the hall and shake hands with the children while they were on their way to class in the morning. It truly shows that he cares about the school and the children in it. And he never misses an event that is school related even if it isn't held at the school. Indian hills is truly one of the best elementary schools around and I feel privileged to have my daughter attend and look forward to my son going to school there in a couple of years.

    We recently moved away from this excellent school and really miss it. The principal creates a really great atmosphere and the movie nights once a month are an easy inexpensive get together that wasn't a hassle to get to and brought the whole family together. We enjoyed the kindergarten teachers and miss so much the close feeling of the school.

    Indian Hills provides a safe and nurturing environment for both of my children. As a teacher at a different school I am thrilled with my children's education and their eagerness to go to school each day. Keep up the good work Indian Hills! We love the teachers and staff that make it a special place to be.
