Hillsborough County Public Schools Reviews
My experience with Hillsborough County Public schools is more than below average. In my opinion, is the most dumbest district there could have ever been. There are times in need where Hillsborough County is just not there for you. There are many factors in this case. School isn’t safe, no where is to be called or known to be safe. You don’t know what people go through when they come home from school or vice versa, thats why everyone should be nice to each other because kids take things very seriously. At my school, there used to be 1 deputy surrounding my school. After the florida shooting, Hillsborough county sent an email to every parent saying there will be or there should be “50 officers” at each school, to help protect our students which i quote, “they are our most important priority”. The day i go back to school, expecting great change, more security, hillsborough made a fast and great decision to provide one more deputy to the school so now we have two!
This rating is for the SDHC as they have taken bussing away for those who are 2 miles within the school but have NO safe way to walk to school. Depending on the day, the air conditioner may be working or not working in some classrooms. So the kids and teachers are in classrooms that are 88 degrees which is not conducive to learning or very good for their health. High school kids can be jouling in the bathroom, kissing between classes, no supplies in bathroom - where is administration? And this is a top rated school! Pretty sad that public school is the way it is here in West Central FL.
Needs to be better at preparing students for college. Resources are not available for students and administration often does not know answers to common college questions but refer you to talk to the institution instead of being helpful. Overall, needs to separate honors/ regular students from AP students and offer greater curriculum in these college courses rather than clumping them all together. AP courses need to reach a greater amount of students. A lot of students are capable of taking AP classes but they are often overlooked and told they shouldn't take them due to difficulty.
