MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Nau mai, haere mai

Welcome to Hillcrest High School, a place where young people learn, develop, grow and thrive.

Teaching, learning and academic achievement is our core business. We aim to provide every student with the opportunity to excel and gain the qualifications, skills and experiences they require for their future pathways.

The beliefs and values of Hillcrest High School are based on our RAPID values which are firmly embedded in the culture and ethos of the school. Within the framework of these values the school promotes high standards of student conduct and behaviour. We believe in empowering our students to make decisions, be accountable for consequences, and lead their own problem-solving. Quality experiences and meaningful interactions help shape our young people into well-balanced and successful people. The concepts underpinning the Hillcrest High School experience include positivity, fun, inclusivity, appropriate levels of challenges, and young people feeling valued. We are incredibly proud of the inclusive learning environment at Hillcrest High School. We welcome all cultures, languages, religions, and abilities, and ensure everyone has the resources they need to succeed. Whatever your young person’s strengths, interests and dreams, they will have the opportunity to do their best and be their best at Hillcrest High School. We look forward to welcoming you on your journey with us.

Christine Williams - Acting Principal
