Seven Hills School

  • Seven Hills is founded on the very real belief that the differences between girls and boys are significant enough to support a model school committed to instruction and learning methods based on current research as it reflects the hearts and minds of boys in the middle years.
  • At Seven Hills, we have the opportunity to create from the ground up an environment that values one-on-one learning. Teachers are encouraged to reduce teaching time in the front of the classroom and work side by side with each student during class periods.
  • Learning assessments employed at Seven Hills are selected for their ability to individualize learning strategies for each student.
  • Tests that are incorporated in the Seven Hills community will function as learning exercises that deepen the learning experience rather than generate performance-based comparisons.

Because of moving and age of our boys it has landed us in various school configurations throughout the years, a total of 4 private schools and 2 public schools, so we have experienced several different settings and kinds of education. Seven Hills School has by far been the best school for our boys (currently two attend). They are academically strong and could have excelled anywhere, but here its not a sole focus on academics. Do not get me wrong academics are strong and the boys' graduate and do very well in all different local private and public high schools. This school goes beyond typical academics and teaches critical thinking (something we found not truly being taught in many other schools), as well as supporting the boys to develop their character in a environment that is not threatening.

Seven Hills School is amazing. Because of many different reasons we have been to 6 other schools (private and public) and by far this school has provided the best fit for our boys. The school's philosophy is to focus on the whole child, providing an academically rigorous curriculum (see the list of where the boys are accepted for high school), but also adding as much emphasis for character development, self confidence and really nurturing the boy to be the best person he can be!

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
