I have a special needs child and the school provided a nurturing environment. He had a great team of teachers, paras and the top level officials were extremely supportive! What a gratifying experience we had at Hillcrest and my son misses his school so!

If you have a child with special needs beware! I wish I had known before the damage of not addressing my sons issues was done.

My son attends Hillcrest Middle School. It has an excellent staff as well as great facilities. The Zero Tolerance for bullying has come through from Booth Hill Elementary School. A great group of people make for the best middle school ever!

The school is fine, with some good teachers, but the overall atmosphere and administration is severely lacking

I go there, and it is great. All the teachers enjoy there job and will go to great lengths to help struggling students. I have loved the 9 years that I have been in the Trumbull School system

There is a high level of parent involvement and most of the teaching staff are very motivated. My child had reading issues and this year she has excelled in the school. We are very pleased. It is a well rounded school.

Hillcrest is a family community based school with a strong PTA. Many extracurricular activities are offered and Art, Music, Foreign Language and Tech courses are offered. Students are encouraged to excel

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
