As a parent of a child with ADD, I found Hillcrest to be his savior. My child struggled in every classroom, receiving poor grades, having few friends, and constantly getting in trouble. Hillcrest provided him with a safe place where he could learn in a way that was best for him. He is truly one of the MANY success stories to have come through Hillcrest. Thank you Hillcrest School.

Special academia catering to the learning needs of the ADD/ADHD and dyslexic child. Individual learning needs addressed/structured for child. Low student to teacher ratio enabling the utmost in individualized education Sports/art/extra-curricular activities available. Hillcrest thrives of close parent-teacher relationships. They cater to your child and expect high parent involvement/accountability and in turn you can count on Hillcrest for high student involvement and accountability. The teachers are personal, professional, motivating, caring, and dedicated to the child's development and success.

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.
