Principal's Message

Greetings Hillcrest Family:

 Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  This year is an exciting time for Hillcrest High School, its staff and students.  We are excited about our academic gains with the increased percentage of freshman students on track for graduation, the increase in our graduation rates as well as the continued increase in the number of students taking challenging honors and advanced placement courses.  Construction on our new athletic facility is rapidly progressing and there have been many other building improvements and upgrades.

It is my goal to constantly strive to be the very best as we offer a challenging educational experience for our students.  I believe that our students are starting their journey to success – destination graduation – which begins here with us. 

This year, I am on a mission to get at least “100 Parents for Hillcrest” who are actively involved in the Principals’ Parent Advisory.  Please consider becoming part of the “100”.   I want to foster relationships and create an environment where students can learn, where parents are involved and our community contributes.  

Our focus this year is to continue the academic gains but more importantly, ensure that our students are in school, on time, and prepared to meet the challenge -   Attendance Matters!  This year will be great and I look forward to leading the continued efforts and initiatives of our school and district. 

Dr. Renee A. Simms
Principal, Hillcrest High School
