Have done our research on private schools and this school can not be beat. The staff and administration are geninuely caring and create a very loving environment for learning. Ownership is on the premises and understands what parents are seeking in private education. This is the most secure facility for safety and privacy in the valley. Our children have thrived in this learning atmosphere. Our children have become leaders with this foundational based educational approach. Can't say enough about how greatful we are that we have discovered Hillcrest Academy!

My daughter transferred into the preK class with Mrs. Whited. We could not be more pleased. In the first 2 months, she started reading sight words, and now 7 months later reading multi sylable words. My expections were far exceeded by the allowance for students to learn at their level and interest. In addition, the curriculum allows students to be kids with imagination time and play periods. I could not be more happy.

My Son attended Hillcrest in pre-school and is now in the 5th grade at Lamping. Hillcrest gave him an exceptional start. When he started public school he was so far advanced and has been ever since. We could not afford to carry on but, we are so grateful for the beginning foundation. Thank you Hillcrest. I plan on sending my two little ones as well.

My husband and I wanted pre-school to be a positive experience for our son. Hillcrest has proven to be the best choice! A wonderful school, great faculty. The parents are all very involved. My son loves school , He started at 3yrs old, and is now in his 2nd year of pre-school. He adores his teacher this year , and did so last year as well. We are so pleased to know we have made the best choice in choosing Hillcrest Academy!

We transferred our daughter to Hillcrest Academy this year after being very unhappy with the public school system. What a difference! The curriculum & education the children receive is leaps & bounds ahead of the public schools, and our daughter LOVES to go to school. Parents are all very involved & willing to help the school any way they can. Wonderful school, great faculty, we are very satisfied.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
