Welcome to Tootin' Hills School!

Tootin' Hills is a school where our students are safe to take risks, to make mistakes, and to grow.  As students travel on the Express to Success, their journey is filled with educational opportunities that allow every child to demonstrate their truest academic potential. Our character education program is infused into our every day learning and instills within each student the traits of Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Integrity.

The Tootin’ Hills faculty and staff are incredibly passionate, compassionate, hard-working, and dedicated. Ensuring each and every student achieves their fullest potential in a socially, emotionally, and academically supportive environment is our number one priority. Our faculty is committed to providing rigorous instructional opportunities that foster and develop a community of learners while promoting a love of learning.

As a school, we recognize that family involvement in the educational experiences of our students is a significant factor for success. We value the support of our families and view them as partners in the education process. Under the dedicated leadership of our PTO and their volunteers, numerous activities occur throughout the school year to unite the school community and enhance the experiences that our students engage in throughout the year. 

We encourage you to use this website as a resource to learn more about our school and all of its accomplishments.

All Aboard!

Peanut Butter & Jelly
Students receive instructions about sandwich making and clean up


Students in Mrs. Flaherty's 5th grade class prepare to make sandwiches for ImmaCare Shelter. First, they receive guidance from Chris O'Connor about how to make a proper peanut butter and jelly sandwich, put on a smock and gloves, and clean up procedures. The class quickly got to work making 170 sandwiches to be delivered to the shelter by parent volunteers.
