    "My son started at Hillcrest in Kindergarten and continues to love the school and teachers. I've been involved with PTA which does an amazing job of making sure the teachers and students get the additional resources necessary for a well-rounded education. They offer many additional after school programs such as Spanish, chess and acting. We recently moved and purposely stayed within Hillcrest's boundaries so my son can continue to go here. The teachers are available and welcome parent involvement as well as foster good communication between home and school."

    "Best school in District 58. The Principal, Parents, and Teachers create a wonderful community. Class sizes are small, and teachers are beyond helpful. It is amazing place for my children to be and learn."

    "Great school, with very caring and skillful teachers. Parental support is very good. Many after-school activities including a very active scouting program. The principal is relatively new (two years) and will hopefully stop trying to fix what was not broken. I have one child finishing this year and another who will be around for a few more years."
