Open Quote Hillcrest is an amazing school. I go there currently, and have a great time every single day! The teachers are amazing, and the students are extremely. I have never once been bullied! I am an above average student. At other schools I've attended I have felt not challenged, but Hillcrest is much different! It is a school for all types of children. I attend a gifted and talented program once a week, while kids who are lagging attend special classes through out the day that help them learn at their own pace. I think Hillcrest is a fantastic school, and that anyone who goes there will be surprised (in a good way!). Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
