Overall I do love this schools, mostly because the teachers care so much and do a great job with teaching and having fun with their students. Although the administration could use work, I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a middle school in Clarke County.
Even though we had mixed reviews about HMS before our 6th grader began attending, we decided to give it a try because we were no longer homeschooling and had great feedback about the neighborhood we were moving to. Now we have two kids there and are grateful for the continued support and dedication at Hilsman. The specific concerns we've shared have always been addressed within a day and my kids love going to school each day. The faculty and staff are always eager to help us and the school provides many activities for them to participate in. We know that this season of life for our kids can be hard, but HMS cares and are vital to our kids continued success.
Hilsman rock!!! I was very nervous about my son's first year of middle school. The entire Hilsman staff are great. My son love his new school and completed 6th grade with all As honor roll...keep up the good work Hilsman!
I moved from out of state 1.5 years ago. My oldest finished middle school here and my two youngest attended this year. I saw the poor ratings for this school before moving but realized it had more to do with test scores in a community with a wide range of socioeconomic status and parent involvement. I believe I was right! There are so many wonderful teachers and staff: Ms. Smith, Ms. Floyd, Ms. Camp, Mr. Holland, Ms. Destefani, Mr.Oolevay, just to name a few that my girls love. The opportunities for art, music, foreign language, Ag, and core academics are fantastic. My kids do thrive here!
