Many of my teachers encouraged me to think outside the box. My sociology teacher influenced me to challenge my own perspectives and to research topics before forming an opinion. My guidance counselor kept me up to date about different opportunities like Junior Achievement, which taught me leadership and problem-solving skills. My art teacher always informed my classmates and I about different contests we can participate in. The school has many was to keep students involved!
Review Hillsborough County Public Schools
I absolutely love Hillsborough public schools, I attend sickles high school as a senior class of 2018, I've gone to the school since my freshman year and have nothing but good experiences. Since freshman year I have been involved in the sports program for both fall and winters sports, and I have also been involved will many clubs! I think this a wonderful school and they teach everything we need to know, before we graduate and they through us into college and the new world! One thing I would like to see change is the lunches, I hope one day they could be a little better!
I absolutely love my school. Yes, there are certain things about public high school that everyone hates like fights and waiting in line in the cafeteria for 30 minutes just to get your lunch but even dealing with all of that, I still love my school so much. I love the amount of school spirit we have even though many students do not think we do. East Bay High School is a four star school in my book because it has amazing programs ,great school spirit and has great teachers. Some of my fellow classmates may not believe it but for me, I will always be an Indian!
