I really enjoyed Hillsboro High School, attending from my freshman to Senior year. The school is like a big family, the teachers are so nice and helpful. Great academics, I love the fact that we had career paths, such as Business, Auto production, and Health Science. So many different activities to choose from and they are all held by wonderful and talented staff. I would say that Hillsboro does get you ready for college, the work and pressure put on you, is something a child needs in order to be prepared for college. Another thing I liked about Hillsboro, is that there is a fellowship meeting after school on Tuesdays to just pray and talk about problems. Each staff member is so sweet and helpful and friendly, I would most definitely recommend this school to others, it is just a good environment and lots of different opportunities.
Starting for freshman year to senior year, it has been a complete change. We are going through construction for a new school. Which is great! Discipline can be improved, but also better activities for students are needed.
