Hillcrest High School Reviews

My experience with Hillcrest High School has been mostly positive. Of course, no school is without its flaws. Hillcrest became a New Tech School just before I started high school. My entire High school experience has been with New Tech and I have grown to really enjoy the New Tech system. Constantly having a MacBook, has given me the ability to learn and become quite comfortable with computers and it has stroked my interest in marketing. I currently plan on going into marketing and being able to easily design presentations, logos, and posters online has given me that ability to pursue that path. Hillcrest High School could improve in certain ways, including having an administration that is more focused on and in-tune with the students. There are times when it feels that, as a student, the administration is out-of-touch with our wants and needs as a student body. However, overall, my experience with Hillcrest High School has been a positive one that I will cherish.

Hillcrest High School is unique because we are technology and project based. We are a New Tech school. This means, we use MacBooks and we do projects rather that bookwork. We are given more responsibility and more opportunities to work together and to do hands-on activities! We also get experience with computers.
I have been going to Hillcrest my entire life, and I love everything about it except for one thing: the rules they choose to enforce. The dress code is sexist against females, but they only really call out the females who aren't related to someone who works at the school. Also, when sexual harrasment occurs, they don't really do much about it. Other than that, I love the small atmosphere of the school with the teacher to student ratio.
