Andrew P. Hill High School Reviews

For me, the only worthwhile thing that comes from Andrew P. Hill is their IB curriculum. Regular core classes tend to be far less rigorous than they should, which is the result of the district wanting to graduate students rather than truly educate them. Although the majority of the school's teachers and faculty are nice people, some of them do not seem like they care about the students. There are only a small number of adults that truly care about their students, which is juxtaposed many others that are, for the most part, sub-par and uncaring. Andrew P. Hill is not a bad school by any means, but attending the school left a lot to be desired. The bright side is that the school is making attempts to improve their faculty and student life. They are now employing new staff with more aspirations to help children succeed, as well as provide more and more student resources with each passing year, including an on-site therapist/student psychologist.

Throughout my four years of high school, I feel as though my experience at Andrew P. Hill was fairly average, borderline poor. There are some teachers that lack a drive and put no effort into their teaching; they throw work at their students expecting them to teach themselves. The counselors are rarely of help - they don't communicate well or connect well with their students, and clearly have favorites. The attendance office has always been a nightmare to contact, and when you go to the office to speak to someone the staff are always in low spirits. They give students and parents attitude. The principal, however, is quite the opposite. He is very cheerful and positive, always interacting with students and greeting them. Overall, Andrew P. Hill could improve on many things, their staff in particular.
Andrew P. Hill was a rough school in the early 2000. I attended this school as a freshman in 2005. During this time the school lacked the budget needed to keep many school activities open. Many clubs and sports had to be removed. Teacher did not have the nescesarry tools to perform their job adequately. Drop-out and teen pregnancy rate were high. Eventually funding increased and the school were able to improve the facility. Many clubs, sport and activities also came back. Student life is now at a much better quality than when I attended.
