    Lake Hills has enthusiastic teachers that go the "extra mile". And as of last year they now have a good Spanish immersion program. My daughter loves it. They teach good values and communicate their goals and and agenda to the parents transparently both through parent-teacher conferences and events like "curriculum night". They collaborate with the community with examples like the Lake Hills Blueberry festival that is held every fall at the school. What more could you want in a school?

    From the morning drop-offs to the arts programs Lake Hills has got it going on! They are organized and talented. My child has continually done well in this school. Teachers are accessible. They try to meet with each student and parent in their own home prior to the new school year. My child has been able to be involved with several musical productions and the art program has been exceptional. They even have on-site after school care!

    I have been working at Lake Hills for 4 years now and after having worked in 5 different school districts in 14 different schools I have NEVER come across a better school! The teachers are the best in skill classroom management individualized teaching and curriculum implementation! There are activities going on as early as 7 00 am and as late as 8 00 pm. The building is truly a neighborhood community center and is open to the public throughout most of the year! There is immense diversity in socio-economic status race and culture which is unique in a city that is viewed as primarily upper-class.

    Great school with an active principal.Teachers are very co-operative and encourage children in all activities.

    I really liked the diversity at this school and so did my son. The teachers really encourage reading which I liked. I think the teachers lost some of the students during the year in math I had to constantly monitor and tutor my son in math.

    I have two children attending Lake Hills. I have been impressed with the commitment of the teachers however there have been some challenges working with the school administration. The student body is made up of a large variety of ethnic backgrounds so many of the students are just starting English which accounts for the lower test scores the school has received on the WASL. Additionally the school has made available some on-site after school care through the YMCA.
