Hillsboro is too fixated on being PC. The district is too busy creating social activists, not creating successful young adults prepared for life. The grad rate is disgraceful. The ability to take electives through PCC has been my only saving grace! Without this option, there was nothing left for me at Liberty. Having to take 5 classes to play sports, when I didn't need that many to graduate, made me turn my direction towards online classes at HOA & PCC.

I’ve been in the Hillsboro school district since kinder and I’m a senior now at Hillsboro high school. If I were to put my Hillsboro school experience in short words, I would say I appreciate the involvement of culture and diversity. Throughout my years in the Hillsboro School District, I have connected with and gained many great relationships with staff and administration. I feel that the Hillsboro community is a safe and healthy environment. Although there are many pros, a con would be the Hillsboro athletics and administration. I have experienced being with coaches/staff that aren’t healthy and helpful. I didn’t get the help I needed when it came to issues with a coach or teacher. Although there were cons, I’m happy to have grown up in this environment and yes there are challenges and there will always be challenges in life but those challenges and how you deal with them and overcoming them is how you learn and facing them now will only benefit you in the future.
Even though i have just been two years into the Hillsboro school district I really fin it good. There is so much diversity. As a Hispanic student i have noticed that most of the personal is bilingual, which has helped me a lot, as I am still not fluent at English. I have seen that the district staff is very cozy, they involved students and parents in activities. They do take into account suggestions from the families, and they are always willing to help you. You can feel comfortable with them. Likewise, you can feel identified with the district members, either because of the roots, or because of the challenges that they have overcome. If someone told me what district do you choose, I would choose Hillsboro School District.
