Open Quote I love teaching at Rolling Hills Public Charter School! The students are great and the staff is terrific. We are a small school dedicated to our students and each of their individual needs. I am able to know each student's strengths and weaknesses and appreciate all. Going to work every morning is a delight, because I know students will respect me, their classmates and all adults in our building. We have a high standard for academics as well as a high standard for character. Rolling Hills is the place for you if you want your child succeeding academically and socially. Close Quote

Open Quote We love Rolling Hills Charter School!!! Our oldest daughter was in private school last year and she was doing fabulous in the small learning environment. We knew we wanted to transition her to public school, so we did our research on local schools. Despite getting into two other charter schools for the 2010-2011 school year, we chose Rolling Hills for our daughter. We knew the 20 minute drive would be worth it. The smaller school creates a safe learning environment, which allows the students to thrive. The curriculum is challenging and accelerated. The Concept Boards and Shurley Method are important teaching tools. The teachers are compassionate and dedicated to their students and to the Harbor Method. We love that the school offers Spanish, PE, computers and music. The principal asks for parents feedback, wants parents involved, and truly cares for the kids. The new school secretary is wonderful. She makes you feel welcomed and communicates with parents via weekly email updates. We are thankful to be part of the Rolling Hills Community. Close Quote

Open Quote We moved from another state to Boise, the availability of Charter schools was one of our main reasons. I did a lot of research to find the best school for our kids. This is our 2nd year at Rolling Hills. We have 3 kids enrolled. The staff is very friendly and compassionate, I have a child with a learning disability and of the 4 schools we have been in RHPCS has offered the most support in the most respectful manner. I feel confident that my children are receiving a superior education in a safe environment. As a parent I feel as though my participation and involvement in my kids education is not only encouraged but welcomed. We love this school! Close Quote

Open Quote This school is a small, safe school with excellent academics. It is one of the best performing schools in Idaho. There are many extracurricular activities such as competitive Volleyball, Basketball and Track for the Middle School ages. MS also participates in the McCall Outdoor Science School every Fall. Younger students can take guitar and writing classes afterschool. The staff really cares about the students and it shows in the performance of the school. Would highly recommend this school!!!! My children have benefited from the excellent education and atmosphere at this school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
