Welcome Hillcrest Middle School Falcons, and get ready for an extraordinary 2016-2017 school year!
As a Falcon, what do I need to know?
Who is Hillcrest? We are a professional community whose members are highly qualified, dedicated and committed to the needs of the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally. Our focus is on rigorous, engaging curriculum utilizing Common Core Standards that promote active learning marked by inquiry, critical thinking, and collaboration in an environment especially designed to meet the unique needs of the middle school student.
What is our strategic imperative? To equip all students with 21st century knowledge and skills accompanied by the self-efficacy to confidently transition to high school, college, and beyond.
How is Hillcrest unique? Hillcrest is proud to offer a particularly wide array of curricular opportunities and supports for its student body simulating a “mini high school” in terms of opportunity, while in the supportive environment of a middle school setting.
How can I get involved? Hillcrest offers something for everyone! Join one of the many Falcon sports, clubs, or Community Education classes offered on the HMS campus.
We are looking forward to a wonderful and rewarding year as a community of learners here at Hillcrest Middle School, where Falcons are “Responsible, Respectful, and Ready for the Future”!
