School Notes

  • There's no single way to describe Seven Hills. But Seven Hills produces a singular outcome: intellectually vibrant, individually attuned, future-ready learners prepared to shape rewarding lives.
  • To put it briefly, Seven Hills is the unique combination of what we believe and how we teach, how we support each other, and, ultimately, how each child learns.
  • We believe each student's brain is like a fingerprint: entirely unique, the only one of its kind in the world.
  • We attract students who are open-minded and good-hearted.
  • We teach collaboratively, we teach to the individual, and we teach students to work hard now for rewards that come later.
  • We listen and respect each other.
  • We reflect on ideas.
  • We take our commitment to each student seriously.
  • We prepare all of our students for a great college experience.
  • We also try to inspire them to grow into great people.
