  • School Code

  • At Hillcrest Elementary, we expect all students to achieve. Hillcrest provides four different standards-based instructional programs to meet the needs of its very diverse student population (Spanish bilingual, Cantonese bilingual, English Language Development, Speech and Language, and Resource Specialist Programs). Integrating students between classrooms allows our children to benefit from our rich linguistic, cultural and ethnic diversity. As part of our assessment system, students create portfolios by reflecting on their accomplishments and highlighting a variety of their work. Students in the 3rd, 4th & 5th grades present what they have learned during the year to a panel of staff, parents, and peers. We believe that by fostering healthy relationships between home and school we can create a learning environment where every student can reach their potential and where every family can play a role in their success.

    At Hillcrest, every classroom features learning activities that are rigorous, relevant, and relational. In practical terms, it is our hope that students are given meaningful learning activities that are connected to their experiences, interests, inclinations, culture and collaborative spirit. Students are to engage in learning that develops their academic, intellectual and social growth.
