Map of Hillcrest Elementary School address.

December 06, 2014
Hillcrest is a global community. My children are greatly benefiting from the diverse population and have made strong friendships that will hopefully weather the more challenging tween years to come. The teachers and staff go above expectations and the administration has been building in programs that benefit all learning styles. The rating on this site is out of date. I appreciate the efforts of the staff so much that I chose to accept a job at Hillcrest. I personally found the majority of the school community so passionate that I brought my children to HES, too. In fact, I was so blown away by the re-engagement of the parent community that I even joined the PTA. Please consider that the Hillcrest Elementary School of 2014-2015 is a much different (significantly improved) school than the one from 2010.

The teachers are committed to the children's education great support from administration. Parents do have responsibility in their child education. The rating is not the reflection of the staffs efforts at Hillcrest Elementary School.

The new principal is trying is best yet, the main problem is 85% of this schools population is transient due to the large appartment complexes near the school. This signifiganlty hinders this schools ability to get active concerned parents involved.

If parents are involved and actively advocate for their child, it is possible to get a good education. If not, they will barely scrape by.
