    This is one of the best schools in the county due to the high quality of teachers and excellent parental involvement. My daughter started kindergarten here when they first opened and is now graduating this year. Her experience has been extremely positive both socially and academically. She has always felt safe here and seems to be motivated by the school's positive atmosphere. I am hoping her junior high experience goes as well.

    Rolling Hills is an excellent school due to the high quaility of teachers and staff. My grandchildren have been attending for three years now and love it. I have found the school enviroment to be a positive one; highly motivating; and encouraging to all students.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the goals and emphasis on reading the principal and teachers encourage at this school. I want my kids to get a great education and they will at this school! The PTO is great and is very involved in providing enrichment activities for the students that the school district can no longer provide (art music etc.). This is one of the top elementary schools in Fairfield!

    I have nothing to say about Rolling Hills but GREAT things. My son has been at Rolling hills for 2 years. Its a breath of fresh air when you walk into the office. The office staff is a wonderful group that all seem to help eachother out. The principle always is there when you need her. My son is in 1st grade and the teachers he has had were wonderful.... I love all the parent involvment and the PTO is VERY friendly and work very hard to help our school. I would recommend Rolling HIlls to anybody who is looking for a great school.

    My family and I love Rolling Hills! The staff and teachers are wonderful and really care about all the students!

    All 3 of my children have attended this school since the opening. I love it. The majority of the staff is exceptional! The kids are encouraged to set goals reach them and set them higher. I am pleased with the emphasis on reading and goal setting.

    I am very disappointed with this school. If your child does not fit "inside the box" don't expect them to learn anything. I actually am concerned for my child's safety and have withdrawn both of my children. No one I have dealt with at this school takes any responsibility for their actions.

    The teachers here are great. The Principal is ok- not a great communicator (started fall 2010). She has a tendency to get defensive when questioned about a matter. The campus is new and very nice. The drop-off and pick-up/parking are a nightmare so I'm glad we're close enough to walk. The office gals are sweet and super helpful. Overall great parent involvement. Happy kids.

    Although I only attended Rolling Hills for sixth grade (Class of 2010) I really hated it. I came to this school with high expectations ("OH this is a wonderful school! All the kids and teachers are wonderful!" etc.) But I was disappointed. I learned absolutely NOTHING that year. Although I was in the GATE "program" at that school we literally did nothing in that class. The teacher I had didn't teach us anything. I think the worst thing though are the kids. There was WAAAAY too much "drama" for 6th graders in my year. The kids kept cursing girls were stuck up brats who were extremely mean etc. I would always complain to the school but they never did anything about it. Sixth grade= the worst grade of my life.

    Top ameninites well diverse teachers and staff and a truly caring environment. Very safe neighborhood. I had 2 kids here up til 5th grade.

    What makes RHE succeed starts from the top. The principal appeared to have hand picked the best teachers and assembled a team who was able to focus on a common goal. The role of this principal was to provide strong leadership & to support the staff & school. I don't know many schools where this system flows so smoothly. This is why RHE is such a strong desirable school. My 2nd grader thrived here and I'm so impressed with their program. Just received Distinguished School status in 2010.

    I have a 4th grader who's attended RHE since it opened! All the teachers he's had helped him blossom into an excellent and GATE student. I also have a kinderg rtner who had the same teacher as my 4th grader. They're all excellent teachers faculty staff are friendly and helpful and the principal is top notch! Can't say enough about RHE! Go Redhawks!
