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!

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!
The Hillsborough County School district has a variety of benefits that it provides its student and parent community. Most schools in my experience have supported and motivated their students through teacher and administrative involvement. Many other students can also probably claim that they have a solid and supporting environment in Hillsborough County that wants them to succeed. However, there are some flaws in this area and schooling that lowers the positive experience. Many schools administer and emphasize a huge number of tests while forgetting about the students behind the scores. Additionally, many teachers shouldn't even be teachers and are hindering any educational progress of their students.
