Hillcrest Elementary School Reviews
Hillcrest deserves its long standing reputation of excellence, offering a well rounded diverse public education. The Teachers are well qualified and many hold many awards and honors in education, the Staff and Administration are also excellent. Because of the reputation, the school has had a few growing pains in the recent 2 years, requiring the addition of a new Kindergarten and 2nd grade teacher. 2009-2010 the school is undergoing renovations and building an addition, to include a new science suite, and classrooms, and many more extras. There is strong parent involvement at school and in the PTA.
