Falcon parents, I wanted to share with you some very exciting news. The Arizona Department of Education released the school letter grades that are based off a number of factors including school performance on AzMerit and student attendance. For the first time since the 2008-2009 school year Hillcrest has earned an “A” rating. We are so thankful to the teachers, staff and students for all the hard work that they put into making this rating possible. We are also thankful for you, the parents, and all the support that you have given to Hillcrest and you students to promote excellence. Our goal now is to continue to work hard to maintain this rating for many years to come…thank for all that you do and GO FALCONS.
