Keep up with all that is happening at Hillcrest High School. Like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram (@hillcrest.huskies) and our SBO Instagram (@hillcrestsbo)

Principal’s Message:

H Town, hope all is well!  

We feel positive vibes here at HHS and thank each patron and student for their trust and participation. Our goal this year is 95% attendance. We need all students to come to school and be in class each day. There are many positive benefits from attending class regularly including avoiding credit recovery and a feeling of belonging to Hillcrest.

We hope for a united student body who are focused on safety, respect, and responsibility. This year we have asked teachers to choose one of their classes to participate in a small service project around the school. Students who choose to participate will make HHS a cleaner and better place. Students will also enjoy the rewards that comes with giving back. Go Huskies!

-Principal Leavitt

Chromebooks

Attendance Postcards

Sports Shoutouts

Shoutout to our Girl’s Soccer Team! Under their new coach Brett Davis, Hillcrest girls are currently 8-2 and ranked #9 in the UHSAA 5A classification! They are led by 6 amazing seniors and talented underclassmen. We wish them continued success in the rest of their season.
