Our Community

Point Hill is a small subsistence farming community nestled in the hills of the parish of St. Catherine, approximately 18 miles north-west of Spanish Town.  The Worthy Park Sugar Estate situated 5 miles to its north is the only significant employer of labor.

 

The Point Hill Leased Primary and Junior High School has been for over 50 years a focal point of community and educational activity serving several surrounding districts such as Duxes, Mendez, Browns Town, Garden Hill, Rennals and Juan de Bolas. It has a student population of approximately 1,200 on 2 shifts and received a performance rating of 51 percent mastery in the 2005 Grade 4 Literacy Test thus underlining the challenges and opportunities confronting the Point Hill Reading Diagnostic Centre.
