The teachers at Hillcrest are dedicated to giving their students the best education possible. They don't hesistate in giving up their own time such as evenings and weekends in preparation to do so. The principal and staff are up on the latest technology and they make sure they are able to prepare their students for successful futures.

My son attended Hillcrest Elementary. As you enter you are greeted with many cheerful attitudes. Smiles abound from staff and children alike. The office staff is very professional and so helpful. My son not only received a top-notch education, but genuine care and concern from many teachers. I always felt right at home when I visited or as a volunteer. What a positive place for kids!

We moved here from a smaller town and I think that this school is excellent. It offers alot of programs and I feel that my son is getting a much better education. The teachers are great and encourage parents to participate in all activities.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
