8 Parent Reviews for Hillcrest High School

I went to Hillcrest. If it hadn't been for a few great teachers, band and colorguard I would not have finished probably.

Hillcrest has had it's fair share of ups and downs but it keeps things interesting. Hillcrest is by far the best school acedemically that I could have my children attend. They are strict but fair and have the best speech team in the state. I wouldn't have my daughter attend another school. She is ...  Read more

Both of my daughters are now students at Hillcrest, and I wouldn't have them attend any other school. The teachers are caring and committed to providing the best possible education to their students (They have an excellent Honors program), and the JROTC program is, in my opinion, one of the best. Go, ...  Read more
