Hillcrest Professional Devel Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

Great staff that goes beyond required duties, multi-day field trips, and integrating 'showtime' into curriculum, making learning fun and applicable.

We took our son out of the best private school in town to enroll him at Hillcrest PDS. The teachers are so fantastic and caring. My son is really advancing and learning so many things, from Music and Art to Roller Coasters! We loved his old school, but Hillcrest has won us over hands down. It's just like his old school, but it's free! In a time where public education is struggling to maintain high achievement levels and standards, Hillcrest PDS is a shining example of what makes a school great and outstanding . Go Dolphins!
