Welcome to Hillcrest Middle School

A Palmetto Silver Award School for 2017-18 and 2018-19


From the Principal’s Desk

Hillcrest Middle School, in collaboration with Becton Dickinson, is hosting a Fall Family Fun Night that focuses on family engagement strategies to support students at home with assignments and to continue celebrating our school’s success as a recipient of the Palmetto Silver Award.  This event will take place from 5 PM to 7 PM on November 21, 2019.  Valued local businesses and community leaders are invited to come and support our Fall Family Fun Night.    In the past, local businesses were asked to provide items in support of our fun night such as door prizes or gift cards. They’ve been very helpful in helping our fun night be successful.  We anticipate reaching more than 250 students as well as their families through this event. We look forward to everyone’s participation in our Fall Family Fun Night on November 21, 2019.
