I would like to change the food they provide and more involvement from the teachers. The parents should be more involved for the students sake it'll motivate students to participate in activities the school provides, it can also get them noticed by colleges that condoned who are involved. I believe if they allow the students to express themselves with the appropriate clothing other than the school districts uniform policy, students would be more satisfied attending school on an everyday basis. Overall students who attend schools of the hillside district will be more than pleased to attend schools with a happy environment and well fully structured safety procedure. They allow students to provide their own fun raisers to save up for their class outside activities that they'll remember for a lifetime. They celebrate those with high achievements and encourage those who don't believe they have what it takes to reach their goals.

Based on my experience in Hillside High School, I learned a lot about others from different backgrounds, with different cultures and new ways of doing things. The teaching is average because it all depends of the teachers. Some are exceptional but some are bad. The safety is very poor. The sport is not really elite, and so on.
The Hillside Board of Education has very good intentions. I truly believe that administrators care about the well-being of their students and set good examples for teachers. Teachers could be given better training on current curriculum but that's a work in progress project. Of course, there is that handful of teachers who are lazy, rude, and nonchalant about the success of their students. Those teachers' negative impact is continuously salvaged by administrators, who are most of the reason I'm giving such a high rating.
