My child has attended Hillcrest for four years and I have always felt that in every grade he has had a highly educated, positive, energetic, wonderful teacher. The staff at this school love thier job, love thier principal and feel very supported by all. Their is art, p.e. music, health ed, computer class and library. What more! They motivate the kids with speacial days before and after testing days, to eliviate the stress. They have afterschool tutoring, tutoring for bilingual families to learn english in the mornings, aftershcool and on the weekends. I could go on and on. I just am glad to be here! Hope everyone else is haveing it this good.

From the beginning of the school year, I have had a hard time. One day I got a note from the school, stating that my daughter (5 years old) had lunch detention, for being tardy four times. Three of the four were excused. I could'nt believe they put a five year old in detention! Other then the above, the principle, staff and assistant principle are friendly.

This is my child's 3rd year at Hillcrest.I was a bit leary the first year because the teacher was very young and inexperienced and the disipline in the classroom was a bit too easy.However,my child did learn quite a bit and I was pleased with that.Last year was great!The teacher was wonderful with my child.Patient,firm and caring.This year promises to be just as good.The principals at this school are all great people.I am especially impressed with main principal.She really cares about these kids and it shows.My child loves school and I have all these caring people to thank for that.

I would definetly recommend this school to anyone. This is my children's first year attending Hillcrest. One is in the 1st grade and the other is in the 3rd grade. They have a great reading program which both my kids enjoy. They also encourage the children to do well. There are lots of rewards. The teachers have always given me a call letting me know what's going on before a letter is sent home, and even before teacher/parent conference day. The principals always seem to be in good spirits. When my children started we had school bus transporting problems. The prinicipal actually gave me a call (not an office assistant) to be sure we straightened it out, and the teachers were also a big help. The communication between the teachers and principal is great. Thanks Hillcrest for a great first year!
