Message from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in Hillcrest High School.  Hillcrest is a 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 iLearn Academy provides enhanced strategies in learning to targeted students.  Global Citizens’ mission is to support the academic and social growth of newly arrived immigrants who speak languages other than English.  Hillcrest proudly focuses on learning and excellence.  Along with our SLC's, we have a comprehensive Advance Placement and College Now Program.  Our students have been accepted to some of the top Universities and have been awarded millions in college scholarships.  Hillcrest provides each of its students a safe, nurturing and supportive environment, in fact we are one of the safest schools in New York City.   

Yours truly,

David T. Morrison
