The Hillsboro R-III School District is like one huge family. The teachers and staff in every building genuinely care about their students, and how they are personally doing. Diversity is a little bit limited at Hillsboro however, due to the school being located in a rural area in Missouri. That being said, if you want to grow up and be educated in a family centered environment, then Hillsboro is the perfect place for you to go to school. There is always an opportunity for everyone here, and someone is always readily available to help.

There was a select number of good teachers that actually knew what they were talking about. These teachers would help you understand the material and would give you opportunities to improve your grade, if you were putting effort into your school work. Other teachers seemed like they did not want you to succeed and would not help you if you did not understand the lesson. Hillsboro really needs to improve in the athletic department. The coaches pick favorites and those are the ones that would get the playing time. It was unfair to the amazing athletes that were shy or not stuck up the coaches a$$ that had to sit the bench because they were not one of the favorites. Hillsboro is a growing school which means there needs to be improvement to give these children a better learning environment as well as the ability to grow in athletics.
My experience at Hillsboro R-III School District was a mixed one. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy my high school experience. I was bullied quite a bit and found myself struggling to make it through. My parents and I informed several teachers and principals about the situation, but it was never resolved. The same happened to my brother as he attended this high school. Despite this, I did have some astonishing teachers throughout my years at Hillsboro. They are the ones who helped me get through all of the things that I was going through. Although they didn't have much power in terms of stopping bullying, they were extremely proactive in making sure I made it through high school in one piece and with a 4.0 GPA. Those shining lights are what makes Hillsboro a worthwhile school.
