Welcome to Hillcrest School! Hillcrest opened its doors on February 18, 1952 in response to the growth of Downers Grove after World War II. Over the years, the physical building has been expanded twice, first in 1957 and then in 1993. One thing that hasn't changed over the years is the Hillcrest community. The Hillcrest community consists of dedicated staff, involved parents and enthusiastic students. Please take a look around and come back soon!

We BELIEVE That . . .

Children are our highest priority.
Hillcrest must be a safe and friendly place.
Teamwork is an intrinsic part of a successful school.
Learning is a shared responsibility of the student, home, school and community.
“Finding the positive” keeps us moving forward.
Students learn best when actively engaged in a respectful environment.
High expectations within the school community are essential.
Leading by example is powerful.

We are a part of a community where kindness, trust, respect and patience create an environment for optimal learning, teaching and working.
