    They are really hard on parents with children who are developmentally behind. They treat our family like a disease that could possibly infect their school. For example I made the following statement 3 times as a litmus test to determine positive or negative energy towards my child and here is what I got. S She is very bright she is just struggling in this area. Staff Well we don't know about that.... I dread phones calls letters etc...because it is always a negative experience coming our way.

    Fantastic school! They encourage respect and diversity. They have many many extra curricular academic activities. They have a great Italian program music art and physical education program. The parents in the community are encouraged to contribute to the classrooms. The teachers set high expectations and are supportive and nurturing. We have been very pleased with our children in this school.

    We were really lucky to get the new principal at Fox Hill. She is great! She actually returns phone calls and really works on helping you deal with a problem if you have one instead of sweeping it under the rug. I can't say enough good things about her. I know a lot of the other parents feel the same way as I do. The teachers are also very nice and really seem to care about the students. The academic program here is great. One of my children started middle school this year and I feel Fox Hill gave her a good foundation for the transition into middle school.

    There is a new principal at this school and she is wonderful. She is very supportive and really listens to you when you speak with her. The teachers here are wonderful and the few I've spoken to seem to be excited about the direction the school is going in under the leadership of the new principal.

    Great academics especially helpful because the learning centers are set up in Pods. There are no organized sports. The music program is fantastic. However the Principal of this school needs to worry more about the school and it's students rather than fund raising politics the PTA & keeping the 'money suppliers' happy!
