Standardized Test Scores

At Hilltop Christian School we have a philosophy of education that centers on well rounded development of children mentally, physically, socially and spiritually.  This is the best preparation for success in school and life.  While we do not train them to pass tests, the comprehensive education that we provide has proven to help children excel academically as you can see from the chart below.   This is just the beginning.  80% of students who attend a Seventh-day Adventist institution through high school complete college compared to a national average of only 14%.  Because we don't start doing any standardized testing until 3rd grade and don't have the children do the full set of standardized tests until 4th grade, the scores for those grades will be a bit lower as the children are still learning how to take this style of tests.  Building a strong foundation in the lower grades, which includes the three R's but also much more, launches students to success at all levels.
