Andrew P. Hill High School Reviews

Andrew Hill is a school located in a low-income community. Compared to other high schools in the same district, we have very little AP classes and incredible diversity. Some uniqueness-es of our school are the Multimedia Academy, Medical Magnet, JROTC, and IB. Before, A. Hill was known as a "ghetto" school, which had me terrified before attending. Yet after a few months of adapting to the atmosphere, we are not a bunch of thugs nor gangsters. We are not best located in San Jose economically, but the students bring so much culture to school to share. I was a Multimedia student and currently IB. Multimedia brought out the creativity that I had lost. For IB, courses are immense. Getting into college isn't the goal, but surviving college is. From numerous group projects, I've built bonds with my classmates, and some became my best friends. No doubt, there are fights in school, but we are just like any other school, and I hope people don't find us scary for what we were called in the past.

Andrew P. Hill high school boast in its many vary academic programs, from International Baccalaureate® to the multimedia academy there is no denial that the school does not provide its student opportunities for higher learning. But what the school excels at in opportunity, it lacks in execution. Being on of the many of the underfunded schools, materials and staffs are often lacking, making it difficult for student to engage. In spite of this, the school still manages to produce many academically successful student because hardship builds good character.
Andrew P. Hill is a school is an imperfect school with many faults but there is a ton of potential. Academics at Andrew P. Hill are sub par; the IB program is not at all what many perceive it to be. AP is mor worthwhile, but there are only a couple AP classes.
The community itself is fairly diverse. There is a lot of exposure to different cultures and languages. There are many different clubs and many sports. School culture is pretty spirited. Safety is an issue, because of the community. Be careful crossing the street. Food is below average. Facilities are poor as well, mainly due to messy students.
Teachers often do not really 'teach' so it is up to the student to get a good grade and learn. College readiness is incredibly lacking. Most of the school counselors allocate their time to other students and have favorites they check up on. They only really prepare you for graduating from the school, so it is up to the student to figure out major choices and make sure they are on track.
