Welcome to Hillcrest School

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome each student to Hillcrest Elementary School.  There are many exciting opportunities in which your child can be successful this 2016-2017 school year.  Please know that we are here to assist your child in every way possible, and we hope to form a partnership that is essential in helping your child reach his or her greatest potential.  We strive to maintain a safe and caring environment for each student as well as provide a strong instructional curriculum. 

The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI) is a joint effort led by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers to develop a common core of K-12 standards in English language arts and Mathematics.  The goal initiative is to develop internationally benchmarked standards that ensure all students are held to consistent expectations that will prepare them for college and career.  We are also focusing on preparing our students to be prepared for the TN Ready assessment.  At Hillcrest, we continue to implement Common Core standards, maintain high expectations, and aspire to provide your child with a quality education.  Please join us as we work to "IMPACT LOCAL; REACH GLOBAL".
