Hillsboro Comprehensive High School Reviews

Hillsboro High School, located in Nashville, Tennessee, is a public high school that is prominently known for being an International Baccalaureate school. In my opinion, I believe that Hillsboro is a very opportunistic school that allows students to obtain a well-rounded education without having to come from an economically affluent family. I believe that Hillsboro's IB program is a very beneficial program that I have partaken in. For the past two years, my world has been full of IB assessments and preparation for my IB tests. While it has been difficult at times trying to manage a social life and will prepare me for college and I am grateful that I am able to not only have this preparation, but knowledge that has given me a more advanced and comprehensive outlook on social, economic, and political matters.
Review Hillsboro Comprehensive High School
My experience at Hillsboro has been nothing but amazing. The diversity and environment of the school makes everyone feel at home. There are a lot of clubs and organizations for our students to join that are both academically and extra curricular. We have school councilors that help us get ready for college and our post high school plans. My senior year most defiantly has been my most excited year at Hillsboro. Our Parent involvement committee has provided so many fun activities for us throughout the year, which includes Homecoming week, Coming home week, and Senior week.
Hillsboro is a well rounded school./ We have many Fine Arts opportunities, Religious clubs, Sports teams/clubs, as well as many social interaction group such as Gay Straight Alliance, Latinos united. Student government association.
Overall the past years have been very enjoyable. Our student body is very well connected. We love each other and sometimes it does feel like we are and huge family. Choose Hillsboro there are plenty of things to do here to make new friends.
