Hillsboro R-III School District Reviews

The building are very nice. The teachers are hard on the students, for the students own good, they want to us excel and succeed after we graduate with the knowledge the students gain from them. The teachers teach their subjects, life lessons, and about all the events going on in the world. Hillsboro athletes are Hillsboro pride and joy. No matter the sport the community and students come to any games home or away. Hillsboro art department helps students produce amazing works of art. They work very hard but have to charge a fee to take the art classes due to low funding to the arts department.

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.
