Message from the Principal

Welcome to Hillcrest High School, a place where students learn to transcend their environment through the integration of academic and social skills, follow their passion and experience the beauty of their dreams.

My 13-year career in education is driven by the desire to help young people achieve their greatest potential. As Principal of Hillcrest High School, my goal is to ensure students have a well-rounded high school experience that is rooted in Green Dot Public School’s mission of College, Leadership, and Life. In my four years at Hillcrest, I have been a part of a transformation that has seen Hillcrest move from being a Level 1 school annually to now being rated a Level 3 by the Tennessee Department of Education.

Here at Hillcrest High School it is our belief that all students regardless of race, religious affiliation, or socio-economic status should have access to high quality education. We also believe in empowering our children in such a manner that they act as representatives of a meaningful and value based society. Our curriculum which focuses on educating the whole child complements this.

We have a team of fabulous faculty members who display immeasurable energy and an intense commitment to see every child succeed every day! It is an honor and a pleasure to not only serve as the Principal of Hillcrest High School, but to return the neighborhood that raised me and made me the man I am today.

The challenges we face ahead may be great, but with your continued support there is nothing we can’t accomplish. There is no option but to achieve excellence! Please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or any of our faculty if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Teddrick T. Estes

Principal, Hillcrest High School

Words from Our Community

"Our parents are incredible. I can relate having children of my own--the parents and I all agree that we want more for our kids than what we had. Because of that, we make an incredible team."

"It’s an amazing school. I love my teachers. They do their job very well. You can actually work on yourself, your body and your brain!"

"The staff and the faculty are amazing. We have people here who actually care about the children. They care about their well-being-not only their education, but their well-being. They care about their morale, their grades, the things they have going on at home. They care about them totally as people; they actually care about these children."
