HHS School-Wide Academic Disclosure

Students are expected to complete all coursework and assessments with academic integrity. The primary goal of grading is to provide high-quality feedback to parents/guardians and students, enabling them to clearly understand a student’s progress, appropriately support the learning process, and encourage student success. Student grades will demonstrate what a student knows and performs within the current quarter. In order to earn credit, students must pass their class with a D or higher. Teachers will be given the flexibility to evaluate students with a grade that reflects their engagement, regular attendance, and grit. This includes students with IEPs and/or 504s, English Language Learners, and refugees.

Grades will be weighted at a minimum of 80% formal assessments as well as 20% daily instruction and practice work. Teachers will give a minimum of four formal assessments per quarter, three of which can be retaken following the teacher retake policy. 


Each academic department publishes its own retake exam criteria. The HHS minimum retake criteria includes no missing daily practice work, and the initial first test must be taken. Daily practice work will only be accepted when turned in during the current unit. Remember 80% of your grades are based on formal assessments. Turning in daily practice work late or incomplete will not produce effective grades.

We are a Community School!

What is a Community School?

A community school is a school that strives to unite school staff, community members, families, and students to work together to help students and families succeed! We work together to provide resources and events for our families. Some examples of the things we do at Hillcrest include providing food, clothing, showers, and holiday support through our Hillcrest Free Market. We connect families and students to local resources. We also host annual community resource events such as Back to School Night, our Wellness Fair, and our Cultural Night. 

  • Our pantry hours will be changing. Students are able to come to the pantry before/after school and during lunch to pack a food bag each week. Please check in with student support. Parents and families will need to make an appointment with Miss El (elena.foley@canyonsdistrict.org or 385-418-9490) Please be sure to check out our website or on Instagram @hillcrestfreemarket. 
  • We will be continuing our farmers market with fresh fruits and vegetables on September 6th at 2 pm in the Cafeteria.
