My oldest daughter is almost done with kindergarten and had the best first year I could have ever hoped for! Teachers are awesome school is beautiful and a lot of parent involvement which I love! They also have an enrichment program already in place for kindergarten which was really great. Some students get pulled to be challenged more and some get pulled for a little more individualized attention. Great school and great programs.

Both of our children go to Sporting Hill and we love it. The community is very involved in the school. The PTO is extremely committed to the children and so are the teachers. Sporting Hill's fourth and fifth grade classes almost always rank first in the area in math testing and has been featured in the newspaper for academic achievements as well.
We are removing our 3rd grade daughter from this school. If you want a responsive principal complete communication and no tolerance for bullying this is not the school for you. Beware.
My son is in the second grade. Our experience with the school has been excellent. Dr. Bowan is very informed and has been very helpfull. Our son's teacher is very good with the kids and our son enjoys class very much. They also have classes in Music and Computers and Gym. They have after school activities and a very good PTO group.
This is regarding the kindergarten program and school in general. School is absolutely beautiful - great playground equiptment safe loading zones wonderful 'specials' including computer and gym. The gym features a 'spider wall' that the kids can climb using magnetic feet/hand things. They have a really good phys. ed curriculum. Library is thoughtfully laid out. Active parents in the K-Rooms. Parents are encouraged to visit and greeted cordially at the security area. You can enter into the admin office - but not the rest of the school without being buzzed in. Our first visit I greeted the lady at the front desk which turned out being the principal! During our walk she knew almost all the kids in the halls by name. I have zero complaints and only wonderful things to say about the Kindergarten program...is a great school! Classrooms are bright and cheery. Teachers are fun and friendly.
