Hillcrest is a jewel in the crown of public schools. Not just for Dallas, but for all public schools. Hillcrest teems with opportunity for students and parents alike. For students, whether it be academics, athletics, arts, student government, journalism, or countless other extra curriculars, there is a place to excel as well as teachers, coaches, and administrators willing to assist in any way. For parents, opportunities to volunteer, whether it be PTA, tutoring, mentoring, Site Based Management, or Athletic Association, every organization is open to any parent. The school has caring and qualified teachers, strong, supportive administrators, and a unique student body consisting of students from over 50 countries with many diversities. All of these qualities are why Hillcrest has such a long list of successful alumni scattered about the world. Hillcrest is proof that public schools not only work, but can rival private schools for quality education.
