Our traditions and symbols help us define ourselves in the present as well as plan for the future. Since the Hill School opened its doors on September 3, 1967, countless children have played and studied in this fine facility. Today the commitment remains to give all our students the opportunity to reach their full potential. Across the district, Hill is renowned for the quality of teaching and learning.
As we continue through another year, we are reminded of our beginnings as a rural community. The Windmill Pointe Subdivision was merely "a dream" for an aspiring contractor. Instead, cornfields and crowing roosters greeted the teachers each day, as long as it wasn't raining. Forsyth was a dirt road and oftentimes the drain would overflow and flood out the road prohibiting the teachers to make it to the school in their cars. The facility itself was much smaller consisting of the office, the main hallway and centrum which housed only one classroom of each grade. We are proud to know that several of our parents attended Hill as children and have chosen to continue the tradition with their families.
Although things have changed, our history and traditions will always be with us. Today our students are building attitudes, skills, and memories in classrooms taught by skilled teachers. The commitment to outstanding teaching remains.
Hill School continues to help students reach beyond the commonplace to stretch themselves in their academic work and in their commitment to one another as members of the community. The early beginnings will remain in our memories of Hill as a symbol of great strength in our tradition of pursuing excellence.
