My experience with Hillsboro has been good and bad. The faciality at the school is average. The math, history, and science department have wonderful teachers and really want the kids to understand the topic. The students at the school however are very close and don't really accept new students.
Hillsboro High School has a welcoming atmosphere. The staff members and students are great people. Everyone has a voice. Hillsboro has given the opportunity for students to be a student representative on the B.O.E. I was fortunate enough to be picked. They care about our opinions, and even allowed the representatives select kids to try and pick new menu items for our lunch. Every student at Hillsboro has a place, somewhere they clique. Weather that be in student council, FBLA, Nerd Society, or Gay Straight Alliance, no one is alone. Hillsboro cares about the academic success of its students. For finals week, student council puts together a “Cookies, cocoa, and crammin’” session the day before finals after school. Teachers stay after school to help students study one on one. A buffet of treats and cocoa is spread out. Hillsboro offers multiple dual credit classes and pushes students to attend Jefferson College for a half day to go to class specifically for their further careers.
I have had a pretty good time here. The administration is good, but the classes were too easy/not difficult enough, but overall it was a good experience.
