This is not a very good school . They do not care about children's manners and behaviors. Student's can play commercial computer games in classroom. I'm really disappointed.

Hillcrest is an example of a school that doesn't just accept diversity it EMBRACES diversity. In the heart of Kansas, Hillcrest is a school with no clear ethnic majority. The school is populated by kids from every racial an ethnic group on the list. What is more important is that the kids EXCEL. Being an English Language Learner does not mean that you are in the minority at Hillcrest, nor does it mean that you are not expected to be smart. Students of all races, religions, and ethnic groups do well here and find friends that both look like themselves and look completely different. I LOVE this school. I LOVE the teachers. I LOVE the principal. Oh, and international pot luck night is to die for.

The children attending Hillcrest are from around the world and they are all so excepting of each other and their differences. It is truly a great place to see the love that can be shared by different cultures.

Hillcrest is the perfect blend of almost every nation! We have housed families from 6 continents and more than 30 countries. Hillcrest gives my children the opportunities that most children never get. I love the staff, teachers, paraeducators and most of all our students and their families! Hillcrest really is number one!
