Hillcrest Elementary School


This website has been created as a help to students and parents in preparing for the new school year.  It is designed to inform and keep you up to date with the school’s events.

Each staff member at Hillcrest is dedicated to providing the best learning environment possible for each child.  However, the learning experience of each student MUST be a cooperative effort between home and school.  It is the parent and child’s responsibility to get the most out of the education provided for the child.  It is the school’s responsibility to provide a quality education for each child.

We at Hillcrest look forward to a relationship of understanding and cooperation between school and home.  We want parents to feel free to contact the school at any time concerning the educational needs of their child.

I would like to welcome you to Hillcrest!!

Patrice Hilton, Principal
