School Notes

  • At Hilltop Christian School, our approach centers on personal, interactive instruction by experienced teachers who see each child as an individual.  Children are encouraged to learn by exploring the world around them, and to communicate and express themselves clearly and confidently. We believe in a solid grounding in academics, and in teaching children to be creative problem solvers.  We believe in teaching children values, like honesty, kindness and patience, so they will develop morality and integrity. We believe in the role of the parent in education, and we have a strong community of parents who share an active commitment to helping their children learn. We are a Christian-based school, but we are non-denominational.  We have a diverse student body and we believe in respect and tolerance for all people. At Hilltop Christian School, we don't teach classes, we teach children.

We are in our third year at Hilltop and couldn't be happier. The class sizes are small. The teachers are wonderful and creative, and the parents are involved in the school community. Our oldest will be out of kindergarten this year, our youngest will start at Hilltop next year.

We love Hilltop! Our oldest daughter is in her third year and very excited to be a kindergartener. Our youngest is in her first year in the 3 & 4 program. The teachers are passionate and creative in reaching each child. There is a great balance between instruction and play that allows the children to apply what they learn as well as make new discoveries on their own. The other families are connected and involved. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience at Hilltop Christian School!

Great school with a welcoming, friendly and well trained staff. The school is NAEYC accredited and the children have such fun while they are learning. The Kindergarten program is excellent with P.E. ,Spanish and music taught by specialist teachers.

Fantastic school with a great community. The teachers are all wonderfully creative and caring, class sizes are small for that one to one interaction. Extra hours include lunch buddies, enrichment classes & Spanish classes.

We are in our second year at Hilltop and we LOVE it. We started out last year in the 2 day a week program and were so pleased that we moved to the 3 day a week program this year. My son is so excited to go to school and is far ahead of his friends who attend different pre-schools.

Great community here at Hilltop. As first graders, the class size is small so his learning is completely tailored to his level. My kids have done great there and we will be sending our last child there without a doubt. We LOVE this place.
