We are thrilled with the experience we have had with a daughter at Hillcrest! They really focus on her individual needs and we have seen HUGE improvement! She loves school, she loves her teachers, and she is actually disappointed on weekends and holidays that she can't go to school. We can't say enough about what Hillcrest has done for her confidence!

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.
