Everyone at Hillcrest High School should be proud of our most recent accomplishment. We were officially informed that the city Department of Education has designated Hillcrest HS as an “A” school on the 2010-11 Progress Report.
Putting this into context, only four comprehensive high schools in Queens were rated “A” by the DOE. Additionally, our composite score of 70.1 was only 1.3 points away from Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan.
Our Progress Report grade is determined by the percentage of students who earn 10 or more academic credits each year, the percentage of our students who successfully graduate in four years, the results of our Learning Environment Survey and the success of students who enter Hillcrest under-prepared for high school.
Over the past year, our students have met with great success through their hard work, the dedication of our staff and the support of our parent body.
This being our 40th anniversary year, it is no better time than now for Hillcrest to be recognized as one of New York City’s top-performing high schools. We truly are 40 and fabulous.
