I was looking for a Christian school to raise my daughters in. I was looking for a place where they would be safe from the growing unchristain world view and Wokeism. I wanted the social interaction of a large school. I also wanted the stability of my daughters staying at the same school with the same friends Kindergarten through 12th grade. My oldest is in 6th grade with many of the same friends and families from Kindergarten. I could not be happier with Hillcrest! My favorite part of being a Hillcrest parent is the families that I have met in Hillcrest. The relationships with these families are priceless. What I would like to share with other families is that I am very happy with the environment my daughters are being raised. Hillcrest is a safe place in a world rapidly going in the wrong direction.
