    I have a special needs child and the school provided a nurturing environment. He had a great team of teachers paras and the top level officials were extremely supportive! What a gratifying experience we had at Hillcrest and my son misses his school so!

    If you have a child with special needs beware! I wish I had known before the damage of not addressing my sons issues was done.

    My son attends Hillcrest Middle School. It has an excellent staff as well as great facilities. The Zero Tolerance for bullying has come through from Booth Hill Elementary School. A great group of people make for the best middle school ever!

  • (5 years ago)

    The school is fine with some good teachers but the overall atmosphere and administration is severely lacking

  • (6 years ago)

    I go there and it is great. All the teachers enjoy there job and will go to great lengths to help struggling students. I have loved the 9 years that I have been in the Trumbull School system

  • (8 years ago)

    There is a high level of parent involvement and most of the teaching staff are very motivated. My child had reading issues and this year she has excelled in the school. We are very pleased. It is a well rounded school.
