We value your feedback as an expert on your student both…

Dear Hill Community, It was an amazing week of celebrating the love for reading at Hill School. Our author visit with Mr. Harpster for all of our Dillos was a huge success. This was just part of Hill’s International Reading Week, which is always highlighted by parents and guardians reading in their home languages to our students. Virtually this year, we had 7 different languages represented! We are also proud to…

Please remember that tomorrow is a staff professional development day, and we will not have any students on-campus. This includes our on-campus childcare as Austin ISD has made this a remote working day for our staff due to safety concerns. We will be communicating if…

Dear Hill Community, February is off to a great start. While Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow, Dash Dillo did not as he emerged from his burrow on Tuesday for a 2nd grade activity. Therefore, we predict an early spring at Hill School! Please remember that this Friday, February 12th, and Monday, February 15th, are staff professional development days. We will not have students on campus these days. Teachers will not be…
