Welcome to Tootin' Hills School!

Tootin' Hills Logo

Tootin’ Hills School is a warm and caring environment where students and their well-being is our number one priority. It is a school where, according to our mission statement, our students are safe to take risks, to make mistakes and to grow. Not only do we strive for academic excellence for all, but we also foster ongoing opportunities for each of our students to demonstrate the four key components of our character education program: Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Integrity.

Tootin’ Hills has very hard-working and dedicated faculty and staff that are committed to seeing every child achieve their fullest potential in a socially, emotionally, and academically supportive environment. Our faculty is committed to providing rigorous instructional opportunities that foster and develop a community of learners while promoting a love of learning.

The engagement of the entire school community is an integral factor in the success of our school. 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 rich experiences that our students engage in throughout the year.
