    Hillbrook School Reviews

    My nephew is in 1st grade at Hillbrook, and it has been the absolute best experience for him--educationally, personally, and socially. Hillbrook does an amazing job of balancing academics with real-world critical thinking skills, allowing their students to be successful in high school and beyond. I am a counselor at a local private high school, and I have the opportunity to work with Hillbrook students when they arrive here. They are some of the most academically prepared, but more importantly (in my opinion) they have the skills that we hope all of our students learn to possess. They are respectful, independent, self-starters, who are looking at the world beyond just the class they are sitting in. When past Hillbrook students are applying to college, they are presented with some of the best colleges in the country to attend. I love the opportunity to work with Hillbrook students in my job and feel grateful that my nephew will receive the same experiences.

    I have two kids at Hillbrook, and couldn't be happier. The school's Core Values are Be Kind, Be Curious, Take Risks, Be Your Best.

    Be Kind: Hillbrook teachers are able to meet my kids where they are at, and work with them to be more empathetic. Teachers and the Lower School Head partner with parents.

    Be Curious: Both kids have time to pursue their curiosities. From explorations to Reach Beyond Block, Hillbrook does an amazing job of giving students choice while also teaching them the things they need to teach them.

    Take Risks: Flag is the Monday morning all-school assembly. 8th graders lead, they share announcements, and then we tell jokes. It is an amazing thing to see young kids stand in front of 380 peers to tell a joke.

    Be Your Best: The Hillbrook Writing Continuum supports students where they are and challenging them to be their best. Rather than a letter grade, this document tracks dozens of writing milestones, and is incredibly useful for students, parents, and teachers.
    They make great promises but struggle to deliver. They dodge inquiry into curriculum citing the individualized learning journey & emphasis on collaborative project-based learning. In reality they struggle to break away from traditional teaching methods & lack goal setting & assessment methods of how they intend to achieve their goals for each child. It’s a nice experience if you happen to have a great teacher, if not, then it fails where most regular schools don't. Administration is not receptive to constructive criticism refusing to entertain the idea that they can do better. They are condescending & do not enlist a feeling of partnership, rather are only interested in your donations. Its student body is pretty uniform despite recent efforts to improve diversity & the social life can feel very cliquey at times. Policy towards bullying is non-existent. It takes a lot of parental involvement to make the school work for your child
