Hillsborough County Public Schools Reviews

Being in Hillsborough County has its ups and downs; but one thing I can say I like is how we have programs like Avid to get us ready for college. As a freshman now and even when I was in Middle School I have always been in avid and I love it! Avid it's a great program forgetting kids ready for college. Because of avid I have better team building skills, more knowledge about college, and I'm more confident when I speak in front of people. One thing I would like to see change is the lack of resources; when I was in Middle School we barely had working computers or good recent textbooks. For us to get a better education having these resources can really help.

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!
Went to Rodger's middle school and Riverview High School, my over all experience was good. I wish I could have stayed for my junior and senior year! The school I went to after in a different country was over-crowded and less funded. I wasn't receiving the same kind of education so I ended up getting my GED to skip my senior year because I was already applying for early admissions to universities.
