Message from the Principal

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. ~Malcolm X

We welcome you to Hillcrest High School for the 2018-19 school year as we prepare our students for GREATNESS! We are excited to welcome back our students, parents, and community leaders. Together, we will ensure our students are prepared for success in college, leadership, and life through excellent and rigorous instruction with highly-trained staff.

It is our belief at Hillcrest High that all students should have college exposure and the choice to attend the best colleges. We stand behind this belief by supporting our students socially, emotionally, and academically as they maneuver through the academic process. We are adamant in our stance that students from every walk of life deserve an opportunity to enroll and graduate from college.

I am extremely honored to be the leader of this school. I consider myself very fortunate to be a team member of Hillcrest High School as well as Green Dot Public Schools. Each day I am reminded just how amazing and wonderful our students and staff are, as they persevere through numerous challenges and excel to greatness. It is these daily reminders that make our school unique and special.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our faculty, staff, or directly to me if you have any questions. Let’s make it a school year of GREATNESS in every way!


Christina Austin

Principal, Hillcrest High School
