Open Quote I absolutely love this school. From my experience the teachers really care about the students’ success here. They are very proactive when it comes to bullying prevention. Teachers and staff are always happy to see the students, especially in the morning during arrival. In my opinion, this is extra important when it comes to setting the tone for the remainder of the day, especially for the little ones. Communication between parents and teachers/staff has been phenomenal. I am also very satisfied with the curriculum. Close Quote

Open Quote I'm surprised the ratings are so low. It's a K-8 SteEM school that at least four private schools have copied. It also has minimal forced bussing. We love Hilburn! Close Quote

Open Quote All three of our children have gone here. It has been a really great experience in every way. There are a few subpar teachers, but that can be true for most schools. Overall he teachers, administration, and parents all contribute to make Hilburn one of the best schools in the area. Close Quote

Open Quote The school offers STEM and Foreign Language to a degree that other schools don't in the area. The staff and teachers are very good, and tend to be younger and enthusiastic. 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.
