Hillsborough Township Public School District Reviews

I loved my time at Hillsborough High School! From freshman year to senior year, I learned that this school has an immense amount of unquieness! There are certain events that bring everyone together, like "Spirit Night." This is a night specific to Hillsborough High School. In fact, I have never heard of any other school having a night dedicated to their students hard work. This night shows all the hard work your grade has put into your "theme," which is voted on in the beginning of the school year. Throughout the year your grade organizes a dance, practices for the relays and tug-of-war during the night, and much more all independently, which I think is important; it prepares us for our futures! The night has a competitive feel, but also reminds everyone how special the school is!

The district is fairly large, with roughly 600 kids per graduating class. I enjoy the numerous academic and extracurricular opportunities available starting with the intermediate school, with clubs ranging from book clubs and chess clubs to clubs focused on character building. The greatest variety and quality of activities is in the high school, where real scientific research goes on alongside advanced video gaming and sports after school. The education itself is of high quality, though it is perhaps slightly overshadowed by neighboring towns with higher-rated schools. Nonetheless, the district is excellent.
As a student of the Hillsborough Township High School, I can say that it is a good school in terms of facilities, faculty, and academics. Every student is provided with his/her own chromebook. The facilities and equipment in almost all subject areas (science, PE, music, etc.) are complete and are in good working condition. The teachers, counselors, administrators, and other staff are all open and friendly, and work hard to foster a productive but manageable environment for students. The school also offers many opportunities and a challenging curriculum (such as AP and Honors classes) for those who are more inclined towards rigorous academic programs. The only room for improvement I see is the student culture of entitlement. Other than that, Hillsborough Township High School is a recommendable institution.
