My childs academic achievements never cease to amaze me. This is due to the hard work of her teachers each and every day. Hillcrest is a well rounded school offering art, music, computer, library and physical education. Parent involvement has contributed to several extras or special days for the children. I cannot say enough about the staff, always greeting you with a smile and willing to take the time to answer any question or help with any problem. I am sad to say they unfortunately offer honor roll recognition to first or second grades. However they do acknowledge all the childrens hard work at school assemblies. Including a dollar scholar program for students bringing up a letter grade. Which of course if you have straight A's doesn't offer alot though. Those students do however get recognized at the end of the year. They do alot for our kids.
