Hillcrest Elementary School
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.
