Hillsboro High School Reviews

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.

There are numerous extra curricular opportunities available at my school. From sports to Nerd Society, there is absolutely something for everyone. The thing I love most is that the staff at my school really encourages everyone to get involved in something. I think this is great because this gives students a place to fit in, have fun, do something productive, and stay off the streets. All of the clubs are led by staff members who are passionate about that club which is great. The only bad thing is that my school does not have a lot of money, so a lot of clubs do not get the adequate amount of money that they need. The majority of money goes to the football team. Overall, the extra curricular opportunities at my school are great!
My school is okay, but if I could do it all over again, I would not go to this school. This is mainly because education is not super important at my school. A lot of the classes just prepare students to go to technical school or straight into the workforce, and this is not what I want to do. Considering I want to go to medical school eventually, I do not feel like I am getting a adequate education at my school. Also, I am not challenged enough at my school which really upsets me. However, there is great school spirit which I love. Football games are always fun to go to. Prom is always great, too. I would say that my school has a great environment but the academics just are not up to par.
