Hillcrest is AWESOME!!! This is one top-notch school. From the administration down to the custodial staff - everyone is there for the children. Hillcrest has high expectations for its children and it shows! My daughter gained over 10 reading levels in 1 school year!

We have been through K and First Grade Multiage. I love the school. Wish there was a stronger parent participation but the teachers are great!

They have a wonderful strings program, along with before & after school care. My son is advanced in reading & math, and I ...  Read more
