    Acceptable for typical students but the district has a history of poor treatment of students with disabilities. The district as a whole and specifically the Elementary school has a very bad reputation for this in the local community forcing many parents of special needs students to look elsewhere. A large part of the District's success is due simply to the families in the district who value education and involve their children in many outside activities - nearly anyone can get good performance from this group. Statistics show IH brings up individual student grades less than other area schools indicating either the students already knew a lot when they entered or that the district isn't able to add additional value as well as the surrounding areas.

    Good students. Teachers are good to the students but not to each other. They talk behind each others' backs; principal does nothing about it. School lunch lacks variety. Good school to send your kids to. If you work here expect good kids but poor fellow workers.

    I have been a district parent for 8 years and have been actively involved. Generally this is a good district and I would give the ES higher marks than the PS and MS. There are significant concerns when it comes to how the school differentiates for the students individual needs. They make a choice to not develop a child's potential in subject areas that may be a strength. They stand firmly behind rigid guidelines for a program that excludes numerous gifted children stating that the regular curriculm is strong enough to meet the bright childs needs. (no sour grapes personally my kids were able to qualify and participate in the program taught by a wonderful teacher) I am surprised to see the student teacher ratio listed as 14. This NEVER happened in my experience. For 4 years my childs math and LA classes had over 30 students. Hard to differentiate.

    Affluent community. Parent involvement is substantial. Also they have occupational therapist speech pathologist and the like on staff for the childrens needs. This is a direct reflection of the disticts community support and large funding. Lack of diversity.

    Our son has attended the Indian Hill Schools since kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. We have been so happy with the education that he has received! The teachers and staff all all top notch and are really able to cater to each child' individual needs. The parental involvement in this district is amazing as well. We feel very blessed to be a part of such a super district!
