Core Values

Hillcrest's Core Values are:
Community – Understanding how our actions can benefit the collective and thereby benefit each of us because we are part of the collective
Collaboration – Understanding that we will accomplish more together than we can individually
Equity – Overserving the underserved through culturally responsive instructional resources and approaches that validate and affirm historically marginalized learners; then, building and bridging to ever increasing access to rigorous teaching and learning for school success
Innovation – Seeking new experiences and ways of being and doing to address critical issues and solve problems
Accountability – Systematically and fairly recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of students, teachers, and staff as well as the failures of the school as a whole
Well-being – Creating safe and loving physical and emotional spaces for all stakeholders so that cooperation and conflict occur constructively, our health is maximized, and harm is minimized and/or repaired
