Hillcrest has a very diverse culture that I really appreciate. There are so many different clubs and opportunities to get involved and meet new people. The teachers here care about the success of their students. I've created so many student teacher relationships that really helped me through my high school career. The principal is amazing! He's vulnerable and open with the students, and makes an effort to learn everyone's name. He drops by classes sometimes, and just says hi to us to make sure we're doing all right. He gets lots of feedback from students, and he makes sure our voices are heard.

Hillcrest High School is one of the best highschools there is. We are an international baccalaureate school which offers IB classes for college credit. You can also take AP classes or concurrent enrollment classes for college credit. The athletics are amazing. We might not be the best in the nation in everything but getting onto a team ensures your personal enjoyment and being grateful to be a part of that organization. On the team, everyone is friends with each other. You spend lots of time together and you become close friends that just makes you enjoy participating in that sport even more! If sports are not your thing, our theatre and music department is advanced and good. Everyone that does it says they enjoy it, and these programs all contribute to being one of the best schools in the state.
I’ve loved going to Hillcrest, and although I have not attended any other High schools to compare it to, I believe it is one of the best high schools in the state. The teachers are always willing to explain concepts as many times as necessary in order to make sure that every student understands and will be successful. The teachers and fellow students and so supportive and have been tremendously important in my overall positive experience!
