Grades 6, 7, & 8 form our Middle School. The studies are more specialized so there are many teachers for each level;
however, each grade has its own primary classroom.
Often, the middle school years are seen as a time of transition between the more structured elementary classes and the more directed high school classes. Hillcrest's students experience the best of both worlds. Sixth graders find themselves studying under different teachers throughout the day. It is their first introduction to instrumental music. Seventh graders are often the"glue" that holds both sixth and eighth grade together. The eighth grade looks forward to transitioning upwards to high school.
