    Overall Experience: High school was okay if you were liked and fit in with the community, but it is a sheltered small town that is nothing like the real world.

    Overall Experience: Hillcrest was a great school to attend. I moved into the Hillcrest boundaries as a freshman and quickly adapted to the people and the school! All of the teachers were friendly for the most part and were all concerned for our well being and for our learning. Overall the school is great

    Overall Experience: It's a good school but there's not a lot of options for you unless you really like sports. Music and theater programs are pretty good.
