My son has been at Hillcrest for 4 years and has had great teachers every year and a wonderful learning experience. We are very happy with Hillcrest. Oak Harbor is a great place to live and we have been very pleased with the school district and schools here!
Wonderful atmosphere, enjoyed the school. But do do your homework and look into if it fits your child. Good academics.
I think Hillcrest has wonderful K-1 teachers. I feel the second grade teachers do not have high expectations and do too many worksheets.
Hillcrest is a wonderful school. All the teachers,staff and volintears are wonderful. The children at Hillcrest learn in many different ways,and the teachers accomadate them all. I was very glad my child went to Hillcrest,I had to take her there and bring her home every day because we lived outside the school boundres,it was worth every minut of my time. The school has wonderful music and art programs which my child realy enjoyed. The teachers are very involved in what the children do. Parents are always enceraged to talk and meet with the teachers.
This school is okay. Some of the staff needs to have quality training when working with children with special needs. Music, art, and other activities are available.
Good school with wonderful teachers. The kindergarten and 1st grade teachers are wonderful and willing to challenge each child individually. My children really had a good start in their educations due to the dedication of these teachers. The parents are not as involved as they could be, but there are a group of devoted ones that seem to get the job done. The Navy is a large influence in the town and they offer help and even sponser the different schools in the district. We were at this school for 3 years and loved it. I would recommend Hillcrest to anyone moving into the area.
