    Both my daughters have been at Hilltop since Kindergarten and have loved it thus far. Mrs. Johnson has been an outstanding teacher caring loving and extremely patient. . My youngest daughter is very sad to leave her this year and move on to 1st grade. I'm hoping she is around when my youngest daughters begins Kindergarten. School activities are always a great success in particular the Family Camp out - the outcome is always outstanding! We love this school!

    Special education teacher is really great. Mrs. Eliason is a wonderful teacher. Supportive and undertanding... we trust her a great deal.

    Of the seven years at Hilltop Drive Elem. Our son had three really caring and nice teachers. Two were screamers that scared my little boy. They didn't scream at him but it still scared him. There seems to be a lot of parent involvement and their Halloween carnival and other holiday events are very popular and extravagant.

    Fantastic educators! Having waited 3 years to transfer our children was worth the wait. My sons teacher Mrs.Johnson is the best! She has instilled in our child a love for reading and writing above what most kinder grades teach. Mrs.Smith has our daughter just soaring above her grade level in reading alone. And sixth grade teacher Mr.Sustal is preparing our son already for middle school academics. Not to mention the principle Mr.Ferguson who knows each parent and child by name! They really prepare your children to learn in a great environment!
