An innovative community that enables students to be lifelong learners who adapt and positively contribute to an ever-changing world.
Hillcrest High School aims to provide each student with the highest quality co-educational experience. Teaching and learning is the core business of the school. Our academic results reflect achievement across the board. We are an inclusive school and seek to provide programmes of learning and opportunities for all students to reach their full potential.
Students are strongly encouraged and supported to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available at this school, both inside and outside the classroom, as potential steps to regional, national and international recognition. While students are encouraged to excel in their specialist areas, we are also determined that they should be balanced and well-rounded young people. We expect our students to have busy, rewarding and fulfilled lives and we are constantly amazed by, and incredibly proud of, the level and range of the success they achieve.
Maintaining a safe and supportive environment is essential in enhancing student learning and achievement. Our behaviour management system focuses on five key values:
Show respect for others
Aim for the best you can be
Identify and develop talents and skills
Persevere and do not give up
Value diversity and differences
Hillcrest High School is a co-educational secondary school with a roll of approximately 1800 students.
Hillcrest High School’s mission is to value all students, enhancing their self-esteem, academic potential, abilities and sense of responsibility by helping them to develop the knowledge, ideas and skills to become active, independent, caring New Zealanders.
