Welcome to Hillcrest Elementary

Adams 12 Five Star Schools rise to the Occasion

Based on their academic results, schools are assigned one of four ratings:  turnaround, priority improvement, improvement and performance.  A record seven schools in the Five Star District moved out of the priority improvement rating.  Additionally, no Five Star School moved into the priority improvement category and the district does not have any schools in turnaround status.  Hillcrest Elementary, due to our academic gains, moved from Improvement to Performance!
