City on a Hill is a really small school that tries to prepare us for college. They started doing my programs and helping people more when I got to my senior year which was not that helpful. It would’ve been a little better if I had a little more support my other 3 years in high school. The food is terrible. Students try to make a change even if is good healthy food but it did not happen. Students often spend money on junk food and food that they should not be eating as often because the food is really bad.

I currently attend City on a Hill Dudley Square. The experience that makes this school is meeting all different types of characters in teachers and students. Also their curriculum is extravagent and they will prepare students for college.
Being that I've been at this school for five years, the school does prepare you for college-level classes. After taking a college course over this summer, my professor was impressed with the skills that City on a Hill taught me. the curriculum is great, and the teachers really care about your learning.
