Im a Senior at HHS. Most students dislike our new principle. because he is not scared to enforce the rules. To be honest, I agree with EVERYTHING Mr.Drish do at HHS. Most students wouldn't have a problem with him if they would just stay out of trouble. We have had a lot of principles since I been there, but he is the ONLY one who have took time to learn EVERY students name. HHS is a good learning environment. Some teachers may not teach us but others do. HHS has changed a lot and Im loving EVERY minute of it.

Mr.Fluker takes no crap from anyone at that school and he lays down the law also. thats why i love the school and i miss it. like other school it has fill of drama but wat school doesnt. if u wanna go to school in evergreen, go to hillcrest. but my best advice is choose ur friends wisely and watch ur back.

I am a student at Hillcrest Hich and I must say even though we don't have a lot of money like other schools we make do with what we have. We are also the 4-A State Champs and that just goes to show that we can do anything. I love Hillcrest and I wouldn't transfer for anything and I would also like to encourage other students to love their high school because High school is suppose to be the best time of your life and my time at Hillcrest has been the best. So to Hillcrest, thank you for making me who I am today.

As a former student, I highly recommend Hillcrest High school, the teachers and staff are wonderful, and you could not ask for a better Principal. Mr. Fluker is an extraordinary person and principal. He honestly cares about his students as if they were his own children. Hillcrest is an awesome place to go to school.

I'm a student at Hillcrest High. I find it to be a well educated school. I have noticed that everyone there is capable of doin there working and succeeding. The class of 2004 provided that anything is possible and can be achieved. Our school is filled with man who care and our willing to help and listen. People don't realize it but Hillcrest helps. People never report or tell the good things about the school its always the bad. I would just like to see everybody say atleast one good thing about the school. I can not think of any other school I would rather be attending.

There are a lot of staff members at Hillcrest High School that want to see their children in their communities grow and succeed. So therefore, the staff members put out a 110%, hoping to get atleast a 100 back from the children at Hillcrest High School.
