Hillcrest High School enrolls students in grades 9-12 and is a part of the Dallas Independent School District. In 2015, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency.[4]


The school opened in 1938 as Vickery Meadows High School. In 1945 it was renamed to Hillcrest High School[5]

Prior to the 1970s Hillcrest was known as "Hebrew High" due to the number of Jewish students enrolled.[6]
