Hillcrest is a safe, happy multilingual and multicultural school located at the crest of Silver Avenue between the Portola and Excelsior Districts in southeast San Francisco.
Our mission is to engage students to become enthusiastic, lifelong learners who will make positive contributions to their families and their communities.
We have one of the most beautiful elementary schools in San Francisco with a gymnasium, auditorium, cafeteria, gorgeous library and a school garden. We have a fully developed arts program, as well as an excellent after school program with enrichment opportunities and plenty of academic support. We are full of supportive staff and families who are full of energy and share a vision of providing an academically challenging school experience while also ensuring a consistently caring school climate that validates each for who they are. Come visit us!
At Hillcrest we are deeply committed to improving the academic, social and emotional well-being of our students and their families. We have a wonderfully supportive staff and families who are full of energy and share a vision of providing an academically challenging school experience while also ensuring a consistently caring climate that validates each for who they are.
We have worked hard to make sure our families feel welcome and valued at Hillcrest and to a large extent we have succeeded in this. They trust us to provide their children with the best education and after school experience possible and we don't take this trust lightly.
As a staff we have explored our own personal stories as they relate to questions of equity and academic achievement. We have engaged in hard conversations about race and continually sharpen our focus on those students that have been historically underserved.
