Hillsboro High School Reviews

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.

As a student, it is hard for me to objectively evaluate my school, so let me list my thoughts so that you can see where I come from:
-We have some unique electives, but other electives are either cut or underfunded
-Our IB program has been poorly managed this year, from poor teachers to a lack of instructions for DP candidates
-Some teachers are bad at teaching and care little about students; other teachers have been huge inspirations to me and have had positive lasting impacts on mine and others' lives
-The administration is corrupt in regards to our student government and is politically biased
-Clubs are underfunded; sports tend to take priority
-Our school pushes its students to go to college, and never introduces alternative post-secondary education options
-Food is unhealthy; pizza and "bento" meals literally drip grease, and they serve (poorly made) cookies on occasion
-Bathroom are messy, sometimes outright broken, and the outdoor one is locked due to students smoking in them
I really like Hilhi's diversity. There are tons of cultures represented throughout the student body and it's something we really cherish within our school. We have several events and organizations that are dedicated to maintain that diversity throughout our school and allows others to learn about different cultures. Something that I would like to see changed is most likely a better representation of College and Career Pathways over the IB Program.
