School has absolutely great teachers, but bullying is an awful problem. Principals are mediocre, and the bag checks are .. excessive.

This school was great once upon a time, however, it is quickly going downhill. Scores in all areas are plummeting. The leadership is allowing the school to continue to decline by creating an environment of hostility that causes teachers to leave. There are so many great teachers leaving and retiring ...  Read more

As a Hillcrest alumni, I will tell you that this school is truthfully an excellent school. The AP scores are substantial (and way better than woodrow's), and as long as you're a student that cares about their grades and works hard then you will succeed at this school. Basically if you slack then the ...  Read more

As a student of Hillcrest High School, I can say honestly that this school is average. The only reason I gave this two stars is because of the teachers.

This school is full of people who care about the students and their education. They do not only act as teachers but friends as well. The student body as a whole is actually quite impressive; they all try to get along and help each other. This is in deed one of the best schools, if not the best, in DISD.

This is one of the best school in the DISD because is not like one of those schools were there is a lot of fights. This school offers many AP courses for you to take.

I give Hillcrest High School a 9 only because there is always room for improvement. Both of my daughters attended this school, one will graduate 2010. The Principal is great (student comes first attitude) teachers, administrative staff all awesome. GO Panthers!

I think this school does not meet the needs of people with special needs. Where are these kids? Not included into regular classrooms or the level of involvement with peers is not happening. The principal remains unavailable and nothing gets done.
