Hillsboro Independent School District Reviews

It was a average experience.I had really good science teachers and one good math teacher.The friends I met there were awesome,and I enjoyed playing golf.The downside is that not everyone got the same opportunities.I enjoyed my art teacher,who would always provide a way for us to be creative and would support us with extra supplies out of her own paycheck.Another downside is that the AC keeps breaking down so we are either hot,or freezing.I loved my physics teacher,she was amazing and such a strong woman,she would help us strive to be better and she provided such good advice,and was a comfort to me in rough times.The sports side is pretty good,cross country made it to regionals,basketball,volleyball,football,baseball,made it to playoffs.All though I feel like the favor some groups,because cross country does good but they don't provide us with new uniforms,we literally have like uniforms from the 1800s.

Hillsboro teachers seem to actually care about their students and their education which is great. However, the rules of each school are a little strict and overwhelming. Also, the school rules don't seem to apply to everyone; more "popular" kids get away with breaking the rules compared to an average student.
Very positive experience, Junior College has prepared me for University. I feel like I will be ready to move on from my Associates degree from Junior College. I feel prepared to complete my Bachelors degree from the University I will be transferring to in the Fall.
