The Hillside District has improved over time, but they should put more effort into the actual education of the students. As a student, sometimes I feel that they put much more effort into the sports programs than STEM or educational programs in our school.

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.
My Overall experience at Hillside High School in Hillside, New Jersey was a eye opening experience. Hillside taught me how to prepare myself for college and what to expect in terms of pursuing your dreams and being able to gain support from other peers who are there for you. The faculty and staff did a great job sustaining the school's resources and helping students seek what they want a career in as they carry on from hto college life.
