Hillcrest Elem. in Belton, MO. - My daughter absolutely loves Hillcrest, the school, principal, and her teachers. Every makes her feel special.

I've really enjoyed having my son at Hillcrest. With the drop off/pick-up routine, however, there is little interaction unless it is sought out by the parent.

I really enjoyed my son being at Hillcrest. His 1st grade teacher was wonderful. I am sad that he will not be attending Hillcrest this year, but excited that he will be at the new school.

If your child doesnt have a 504 plan,or an iep you should be fine here. My son had a's and then suddenly he brought home a failing progress report with no warning, failing almost all classes! I signed up for the email that you can get if your child misses an assignment and it never worked either. We had meetings with the principal and teachers, nothing helped. I would give this school a failing gradae

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
