Message from the Principal:

Welcome to Hillcrest High School's Web site.  By viewing this site, you will get a glimpse into the excitement that is Hillcrest.  Hillcrest is a large cosmopolitan high school of 3,000 students.  Everyone of Hillcrest's 3,000 students chooses to be part of one of our nine Small Learning Communities (SLC's).  Each SLC has 450 or less students and has its own theme, course offerings, teachers, and guidance counselors.  Each of our eight 4-year SLC's is linked to career themes and has connections to the outside professional world.  Our eight 4-year SLC's are: Academy of Media Arts & Music, Pre-Med, Theatre, Teachers of Tomorrow, Public Service & Law, Business / Technology (BIZ / Tek), and Health Sciences.  Our one year Senior  I-Zone Academy provides enhanced strategies in learning to targeted fourth year students.  All of these SLC's have links within this website.  Hillcrest proudly focuses on learning and excellence.  Along with our SLC's, we have a most comprehensive Advance Placement or College Now Program.  Over 950 students are involved in some level of Advance Placement or College Now Program.  Hillcrest provides each of our students a safe nurturing and supportive environment, which makes learning purposeful and enjoyable.  Again, welcome to Hillcrest!!
Yours truly,
 

David T. Morrison        

 David T. Morrison, Principal

Outstanding Hillcrest High School Students attended a College Fair sponsored by the NY Mets at Citi field Stadium on April 03, 2014.  The trip was organized by Mr. Cichon and chaperoned by Mr. Stormont (teacher), Ms. Akhtar (Parent Coordinator), Ms, Gayle, and Ms. Phillips (parents). 

The day began at 11:00 am with a College Prep presentation by the City University of New York. Mr. Richard P. Alvarez, University Director of Admission, explained the importance of college and benefits of student life at CUNY.  The program continued with player Q&A videos, Mr. Mets and the Pepsi Party Patrol.  Following the program students explored the College Fair on the Field Level Concourse.  At each exhibit table, students had access to admissions counselors from colleges and universities throughout the tri-state and other areas.  Students had an opportunity to ask questions and receive information from each table.   After the College Fair, everyone stayed for the game (Mets vs. Washington Nationals).___________________________________
