    Wonderful wonderful teachers dedicated warm knowledgeable. I am able to say all this after having my kid in a private school/ kindergarten for a few years. Multicultural environment truly diverse discipline great leadership safety. My child has learned that the shelled environment in which he was in the private school is not the real world. He managed to make LOTS of friends at Fox Hill and very important he is happy and thriving both emotionally and intellectually.

    We just moved into this County and my fourth grade son had a hard time relocating. He has only been at Fox Hill for 2 months and he occassionally comes home w tears saying that the kids laugh at him and call him "carmel" because of his skin color. I'm not trying to cry racism....but if the shoe fit

    Washington TWP has a problem with both entitlement and racism. There is a staff member / administrator who when she doesnt' get what she wants or feels she has been slighted uses her position to cry racism and I have to question what that teaches the children in this district. I would avoid this Township if at all possible.

    We love Fox Hill. The teachers are passionate about teaching there is a rich diversity here and there are many affordable enrichment activities from which to choose. There is an option called COMPASS which integrates third fourth and fifth graders of different abilities. The International Baccalaureate program is being started this year as well. We have watched my son come out of his shell here and we've become part of a larger family. He started Fox Hill in Kindergarten and this is his last year. We will miss it very much. Come to Fox Hill and get involved!

    I love Fox Hill. This is my son's last year and it has been a good experience. The teachers keep the standards high and there is a general feeling of accountability for the child's progress through the grades. The administrators are available and approacable. It is hard to tell the difference between the Inquiry students and the regular class rooms. Love this school and will miss it.

    I have two children who attend Fox Hill and we love it! I volunteer at the school once a week and have observed many teachers and administrators.

    My child loves this school. I was initially down because I wanted my child to attend Crooked Creek(score of 10). I have to pass it to get to fox hill. However I have been pleased. They are a diverse school and have adjusted to meet the needs of all students( white black and hispanic). One highlight for the school are the after school enrichment programs there are tons and they're highly affordable.

    My children love Fox Hill. The principal is the best ever and even the after school AYS director is great. Fox Hill is number 1 in my book.
