Hillsboro High School Reviews

What I really like about the high school is how diverse it is from students to teachers. Students are kind and will try to help you work together with you when you need help solving a problem. The teachers tries very hard to make sure you could be the most successful person you can be. They challenge you, learn your strengths and weaknesses, open opportunities to you in order to make sure you are the best person you can be. The clubs and the sports are very inclusive and varies from art to basketball. However, the Hillsboro High School needs to work on their safety and their administration. The school does give an effort to make sure the students are safe, however they should keep more of a close eye on their students. Their administration needs to be more reasonable when it comes to giving out tardie slips and be more updated on the student's reason of absence. Overall, Hillsboro Highschool is a very good school with good staff, students, and programs.

Hillsboro High School has the worst resources in the district. People are scrambling for average things given by any other district or school Many of the schools around us are given chromebooks and buildings without cracks in the walls or leaks coming from the ceiling but this school does mainly because we are the main school with the most racial diversity in the district. Though we have amazing teachers who care about what happens to the students they teach. They want each and everyone of us to succeed and they find fun ways to accomplish that. So the school itself isn't so bad it's mostly the discrimination and prejudice it faces that lowers what it is.
Hillsboro High School is a fairly average school. We have some excellent teachers and then a few whose teaching is, well, let's call it subpar. Hilhi is mostly lacking in terms of the atmosphere at school - a large number of the student body are apathetic and clearly have no interest in the school or their own education. Events such as pep assemblies and spirit days are frequently scheduled but school spirit is pretty much nonexistent. In general, the sports teams at Hilhi are decent, and our fine arts programs are excellent. One positive of this school is its "College and Career Pathways" Program. Sophomores forecast for a pathway to complete their junior and senior year which will prepare them for the field they plan to go into after graduation. Overall, Hilhi isn't the best but it does provide good opportunities and learning experiences for the students.
