Many of the “higher ups” are incompetent. They get power and act like complete tools who don’t can’t be bothered doing their jobs so they deny, blame, insult and go back on their word. I don’t think I have seen a more unorganised environment ever. Students are arrogant, pathetic no lives who think they’re cool. I find it crazy that a kid who defended himself against a bully got suspended, genuinely baffles me, however this is Hillcrest so are we really surprised? I tried to make change in the school but got shut down on so many different occasions.
Don’t send your children there parents.
Well in the last month I’ve been working from home, I have busted out 6 assignments, and I’ve achieved more work here than I ever could at Hillcrest. For me, that’s a success. I have been funding my mathematical education since my math teacher refused to because after 2 years of covid lockdowns, all of a sudden he doesn’t assign online work to his students that are struggling MENTALLY… If a school wants to display that they have great support for mental health, they need to take some measures in doing that. As a student, it affected my education. As a human being, it made me feel worthless. It started as teachers not replying to emails regarding work, to them marking me as ‘unjustified’ and now in less than 20 days, I will be removed from the roll. I was treated as if I was an invisible problem in their system. Every school gets provided with set police officers and mental health concealers, and I will say this with a full chest that Hillcrest high school doesn’t use them. The teachers try to handle these situations themselves, instead of leaving it to the people who are certified. Teachers are there for teaching, but at Hilly they seem to be getting a bit confused by their role. An example of this was when I mentioned an incident involving a boy who S.A me to my concealer, and instead of leaving it up to the cops... they pulled the boy aside from class and gave him a presentation to watch on consent. This caused his whole friend group to bully me for months. Hillcrest does not handle situations correctly and it shows.
I have not had a good experience at hillcrest high school at all. I got beaten up and nothing was done, they told me I would fail level one when I had no na credits (I passed with a merit endorsement). A lot of the teachers don’t care, it’s too easy to ditch class, and the learning environments generally aren’t well controlled.
