Hillsboro High School Reviews

Hillsboro High School is one of the most unique schools I have been to in my life. In the two short years I have attended this school I have learned many things. This school is very different from my previous schools, and it has a distinct clic problem, which is noticeable as soon as you enter the building. I have also learned that many kids, even my age, have gone through many struggles, including losing a parent. The thing about this school is that many people who attend are very stuck in their ways but once you find the diamonds through the rocks you'll be just fine.
Review Hillsboro High School
Hillsboro Independent School District is a small and loving district. Everyone in the town comes support every sporting event that takes place that day. One thing I would hope to change would be the cafeteria food and the trust of the administration.
All of my schooling has been in Hillsboro. I do not have a lot to compare it to. I do see that we DO NOT have teacher or parent support on a consistent basis. The same parents help with everything. Many parents don't even bother showing up for events. I do not know if I would choose a different path if I had it to do all over again. I have seen other schools that appear to be thriving and growing where our school does not seem to make progress from year to year.
