Hillcrest Academy Ratings & Reviews

My son went to this school before it moved to the Power Rd. campus. It was terrible. He had a medical condition and they refused to give him a 504 Plan or much accomodations. He was tardy at times due to intense fatigue and the principal said to put him on sleep meds rather than do a 504 plan. The 1st grade teacher was a complete nightmare. She had a classroom of 12 kids and referred all the boys including my child to special ED. I pulled him out of this school after that. His kindergarten teacher was a better teacher. I would not recommend this school. They had problems with teacher and administrator turnover, for awhile the school smelled because they had no janitor and started combining grades which was nightmarish for the students.

My son did not return to this school because of many reasons. I took a chance on this brand new school and gave them a year to get it together and they failed. I guess the old owner of the school was in charge of the before and after school program and when I call to get tax info for filing they state they do not have that information because they are no longer the owner and they are no longer a company?! They dont have a phone number or anything! My advice to others get the info ASAP before this next "business" is no longer there!

Bumps and bruises, but the teachers and admin are doing their best to hold high standards, I am a parent of a first grader and will be returning to school knowing it will continue to improve.

I am so glad that I made the decision to transfer my kids to this school. They are about to start their 3rd year with Hillcrest Academy and they are doing great! I really like the teachers and staff. The classes are small so my kids are getting lots of individualized attention. The bus transportation is free which helps a lot and we've had to pay for bus transportation at other schools. My kids have made some really great friends. The school is still in its early years and has experienced some set backs but I still really believe in this school and their vision. We have had a very positive experience and would definitely recommend Hillcrest to others.

I really wanted Hillcrest to be the place where my kids went to school until they graduated. After sticking it out until April, I unfortunately found the same to be true about the school board that runs the school as another commenter below. One or two in particular. The teachers were awesome, unfortunately, most of them are leaving because of how they were treated. Many are sticking it out, this I know for certain. Next year, most are gone. Two principals, gone also, because they person they reported to knows nothing about education. They were treated like puppets. We moved from CA and were first lied to last fall when told they had charters for HS and grade school. My oldest was displaced twice because of bad management by Hillcrest and again, many lies. Both special ed providers left because of non payment. My child and several others have basically been without services since the beginning of March. No one bothered to even communicate it to us when it happened. Additionally, those great teachers that have been employed, well, several have had paychecks bounce more than once. I quote the principals and other teachers and parents who have left Hillcrest, "It would be best if this place would just shut down." I recommend you try any other school in AZ. The small feel was wonderful, the environment was wonderful, but unfortunately, lots of greed going on beneath the surface of what we all see. They mess with kids lives, make promises they definitely cannot keep and so many people have been hurt this year as a result. Most of them kids.
