Hinsdale Township High School District No. 86 Reviews

I attended high schools at three different schools, two in Florida and HCHS. Central was far superior to the education provided by the other schools, bar none! Having been a teacher, I know that high expectations are very important. Those set by the administration, teachers, students and parents. Each group set and delivered very high expectations.
Parental involvement with the educational process was very high also. Maybe over the top in some ways but again, having been a teacher (not at
HCHS or Dist 86) this is another vital component of a solid educational program (although schools aren’t allowed to include that in the spell out of their expectations. I honestly feel I learned and was challenged much more in high school than college. Kudos to HCHS staff!

Currently I have two daughters at Hinsdale Central High School- District 86. My senior daughter admitted to the University of Chicago for the class of 2023. My junior daughter is doing well. My son graduated from this high school in 2016. He is a junior at New York University and major in Mechanical Engineering. The high school offers challenge classes academically to meet advanced students need. The students will find different level classes to meet their need. The school offers many elective classes from art, music, technology, business, family and consumer sciences and Driver and health education. This is a diversity high school, students always can find a comfortable group or friends hangout to talking and having fun. The school offers AP, honors and standard curriculums.
Teachers run their courses like college classes, simulating freshman year and completely preparing us for the next 4 years. I’ve had several friends’ siblings come back from college saying high school is harder because it prepares us for such high level colleges that most universities run their courses at the same vigor as ours. It has the best learning environment in the area and I am very happy I’ve gone here for my 4 years of high school.
