History of Hillcrest Elementary School

  • Surrounded by a rapidly growing residential and commercial community, Hillcrest Elementary School, 2200 Davidson Road, is located south of Bluemound Road, north of Arcadian Avenue, east of Hwy 59 and west of Barker Road in the town of Brookfield.

    Hillcrest was originally part of the Pewaukee Joint School District.  The first Hillcrest School was built in 1866.  In 1883, another building replaced it.  The second building, which is still standing on the corner of Davidson Road and Main Street, was in use until 1953.  In 1953, the present school was built.  Since then, additions were completed in 1956, 1958, 1962 and 1988.  Hillcrest became part of the Waukesha School District in 1962.

    Hillcrest’s 310 students are served by 45 staff members.  Students who attend Hillcrest later go on to Horning Middle School then North, South or West High School.

    Hillcrest’s educational programs emphasize a strong foundation in basic academic skills provided by a team of classroom teachers and specialists. The curriculum is balanced and integrated and addresses the total development of each student.  Students are involved in varied learning experiences that support, enrich and extend the curriculum.  Great pride is taken in the strong, harmonious relationships that are consistently maintained between home and school.

    Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) scheduled events throughout the school year include regular monthly meetings, special events for the community, and information meetings on district curriculum, expectations, and other current educational topics.

    Parent-teacher meetings are held throughout the school year including conferences, curriculum discussions, and PT0.  The Hillcrest staff works with parents and the community to develop volunteer programs that assist and support classroom and school activities.

    Hillcrest is a small friendly school that allows for providing personalized educational resources to students, parents and the community.  The staff is very positive and committed to providing students with quality learning experiences in an environment that promotes accommodating the developmental needs and abilities of each student.
