A BRIEF HISTORY OF HILLCREST JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL:
The original structure was built in 1911 as Hillcrest School and served grades 1-8. From 1913-16 there was a change to a student body of 7th-12th graders. From 1916-54 the school was renamed Murray High & Junior High, and then served specifically as Murray Junior High from 1954-1960. The building was once again renamed the current name of Hillcrest Junior High in the 1960-61 school year, with many additions and structural changes taking place over the years.
Ground was broken for a new Hillcrest Junior High School in June 2013 and construction is currently underway. See photos of the building site and learn more about the construction and progress of this exciting project by going to the Hillcrest Jr High construction website (click on this link).
