    My kids both attend National Hills and I cannot say that I too happy with it. Maybe I have higher standards than most. Based on the review above me I can understand how that parent would rank it so hi. Maybe you should get one of those "great" teachers to spell check your reviews in the future. Lets face it this is the worst public school system I have ever been a part of. My 2 gilrs will be attending a private school before the Christmas

    National Hills is the best kept secret in Augusta Georgia. Both of my children have excelled beyond expectation because of th love and attention the teachers give such as Ms. Lowry Deberry-Bull and the administration. The administration actually listens to parent conerns. this school is number one.
