Hinsdale Township High School District No. 86 Reviews
I think that there are a lot of quarrels and fights between Hinsdale Central High School and Hinsdale South High School, particularly amongst the parents. Much of the fighting would be from funding and disparages between the size and education levels of the schools. Overall, as a student form Hinsdale Central, I have loved my time here and cannot wait to continue!
Hinsdale Central is by far one of the most challenging public high schools in the state. Some of my classmates who were transfer students from other schools got straight As there. They now are getting straight Bs with some Cs. Part of this reason is due to the school's emphasis on honors and AP classes Another reason is due to the way certain classes are taught and certain teachers' teaching abilities. Most kids at Hinsdale Central will tell you that the science department is terrible. There are classes where a fifth of a class will have the same tutor for the subject. Apart from science, the school's academics are great. Over 200 students are inducted into NHS and over 40 students get into Ivy Leagues and top 20 schools each year. School spirit is strong at school and it's a great school for athletes. The school has some diversity, but most minority students do not live in Hinsdale.
There are so many clubs, sports, extracurriculars, AP classes, and other opportunities that students can gain vast knowledge, valuable life lessons, and have fun all in one place!
