Our kid is in their fifth year at Hill Country We definitely recommend this school! I have watched a wonderful transformation of this school over the past few years. Our high school kid feels very comfortable interacting with the staff. There are different academic curriculum tracks. The Learning
... Read more Center is offered for kids needing extra help academically or a GATE program for kids that needs to be challenged a bit more. The homework load always seemed appropriate (study hall is offered for upper school). The opportunity to play multiple sports has been nice (coaching staff is great). The guidance counselor is there for your kid! She is knowledgeable about the college process and eager to sit with you. Other activities include academic clubs, drama, fencing, a music conservatory and FCA just to name a few. Our kid is very involved in school both academic and athletic activities. Even with this being the case, we still have time for church, family, and community service. I feel it is important to say that this, or any other school, is not Utopia. Hill Country is though a wonderful school where your kid can get a great classical education with Christ-like values. Read less

We've had children at the school for 13 years.
