We are honored and excited to have your children join us at Hillcrest Elementary. Hillcrest is a wonderful K-6 school where we focus on developing critical thinkers, creative artists, great communicators, student leadership, and multilingualism.

Hillcrest Elementary is a very special place.  It is made so by our wonderful community, parents, students, and staff. We invite you to get involved by joining PTA, School Site Council, ELAC, and our monthly Coffee with the Principal.
