Hillsboro School District Reviews

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.

My experiences with the Hillsboro school district wasn’t the best, there were some activities I’ve missed out on due to budget cuts and although I understand the reason behind those cuts mainly because the schools are public and the students are on “free-reduce” the school is funding for students and there is a limited amount of funds possible for schools. But there are some moments that I enjoyed thanks to the Hillsboro school district and overall appreciate how they try their best to help those are in need of support.
It was a good place to call home, and I made a lot of friends. There are good people, there are shady kids, it has a mix of everything. There is a fun, friendly competition between high schools, and it feels safe. Students are actively trying to make their schools better, and parents are often involved. There are a lot of teachers that aren't very good, but the occasional amazing teacher makes up for it. The district administration keeps trying to make changes that it sees as being necessary, but refuses to listen to the things that really need to be changed, such as academic course availability and teaching standards. It is nearly impossible to change the school board's mind about things that the students need and care about.
