    This school needs to be stopped from doing more harm to children. Don't go here. You will be homeschooling before you know it. There is no organization or communication. The administration and teachers don't care.

    Our children have been attending Hill City Elementary School from Kindergarten to fourth grade. The staff are courteous thoughtful and caring and always remembered or names from the start. All of the teachers have been great. We were faced with possibly having to move this year but when it came down to it we made the decision not to pull our kids out of this school - as ones as good as this one is hard to find!
