Andrew P. Hill High School Reviews

I went to Andrew P. Hill High School for 4 years. It is a great high school. Some of the best programs to join are Medical Magnet, and Social Justice. Medical magnet focuses on a medical career, Social Justice is more about laws. It has the best teachers. They will help us so much. Especially the students that are struggling with focusing in class, or slacking off. They will get us get on track for graduation and will push us to do our best.
Andrew P. Hill has a dress code that everybody at the school dislikes. The colors we are only allowed to wear is black, yellow/gold, grey, and white. They are very strict with that policy because around the area there is gang groups. NO red or blue are allowed. If we decide to wear red or blue, there will be consequences, such as after school detention. Overall, the school has great teachers that will make sure students learn and it is a safe environment for all!

I think that Andrew Hill does a decent job in providing resources and opportunities for students; it is just a matter if you are willing to seek it out. My experience was fairly good at Andrew Hill as I participated in clubs, sports, hard IB classes. etc.. I just wish I was able to take the multimedia class to learn about photoshop and Adobe while also being in IB. Also, I wish there was more school spirit, but not everything can be perfect. All in all, it is what you make of it!
Although I’m a student of Andrew P Hill High School, I think it’s my obligation to make the school better by giving some review and reflection from my opinion. First of all, I want to talk about the school’ safety. To be honest, I’m really concern about it because there are lots of fights took place in the school year. Some of them were related to dangerous weapons, for example: guns, knives. It has just happened in the year of 2020, there’s also a contradiction between the guardian and students, too. Secondly, the food is not good for me. However, because it’s for free, I don’t really mind much about that. The good things are the teachers considerately take care of their students, how they’re feeling and how to help them to solve the problems. Anyway, I still pay immensely my respect and my love even though there are some flaws, but it’s easy to understand that not only my school has fighting during the school’s year.
