School Reviews

  • Recommended August 10, 2013 - My son graduated from Hillcrest School after 9 years. He attended public school in K-4 grade but moved to Hilcrest School in 5th. Without Hillcrest School our lives would have been different, his path would have been different. He starts college in Austin, Tx in the fall. We are so very thankful for Hillcrest School and what they were able to provide. - Posted by Parent
