This school is great but I do have to say there are some flaws in the school. I don't like the rule for not allowing cellphones to step one foot in the building. What if there was an emergency my son wouldn't have his phone! Otherwise very good school!

Hillcrest High School is an okay school (6/10). I attend Hillcrest High School and it is not the best. The classes are unorganized. The Honor classes are mixed up.

My daughter is a freshman in the Pre-Med Academy. So far she loves it! I met her teachers at parent teacher conference and I was impressed. Her Science teachers- Earth and Chemistry are very supportive and are always looking for new ways for the students to learn.
