It was great! It was surely an experience far above anything from my past. The teachers really seemed to care about the students and their education. Whenever I had certain subject or even something at home troubling, I could always go to a teacher to talk about it. The atmosphere was amazing and rewarding!

I liked the atmosphere of the Hilliard city school district. As an alum, going to a prestigious school district is very important to your college life. I can confidently say, the Hilliard City School District has prepared me to be a successful college student. A couple of things Id like to change about the district is space, because the school district is very popular and covers a very large amount of the central Columbus area, you see many students eating lunch on the floor, classrooms are overpacked, and there are not enough school resource officers to protect a large amount of students. Otherwise, I have no complaints abouut the district.
I am Senior at Hilliard Davidson High School and I have been in the Hilliard City School district since I've been in fifth grade, and have attended 4 schools in the district. They are very good schools and I have never had a problem with any teachers or the way the district handled any situations in the schools. I love how all the teachers in Hilliard schools are very involved in the classroom and are always willing to help students. Overall I think the Hilliard City School District is excellent.
