Local school among top 3 nationally

Footprints thanks Brooke Agee for sharing the news that one of the Southeast's multicultural and multilingual elementary schools has been selected to receive the 2013 Community Schools Award for Excellence. 

Hillcrest Elementary School receives the award from the Coalition for Community Schools for being one of the most "highly effective and efficient community schools." Hillcrest is one of three schools across the country selected this year.

"It's our moral imperative to teach our students the skills they will need to be successful at school and in their community," Hillcrest Principal Richard Zapien was quoted in a press release as saying.
