Hillsborough High School Reviews

I personally had a good experience at hillsborough high. I made many friends and participated in events and clubs etc. spirit night, football games, and prom are among my favorite memories from high school. I believe there really is a place for any student at the high school with all the programs and clubs we have at school. While some teacher actually cared and wanted to teach, others are unorganized pathetic excuses of educators. Some students cannot excel because the teachers favorite students, and you can't change teachers even if you have an issue with one. Some teachers could not care less about a single thing that goes on in school until their jobs are in the line and they must band together with the union to save their jobs. PE program in general is a mess. Beside all of that, hillsborough is a great place to go to school and I wouldn't have traded my experiences for anything.
Review Hillsborough High School
Graduating from Hillsborough High School allowed me to be very prepared for a college education; between my involvement in varsity ice-hockey that assisted in time management, my AP course load that gave a sample of the difficulty of college academics as well as providing me with credits, to the architecture classes I was able to take that gave me the inspiration to pursue it in college, the opportunities given to me through the school undoubtedly helped me get into the program I'm in now and have helped me since to succeed.
This school is really something special. There is a group/club/sport/activity for everyone and there is always friends to be made. HHS is not as cliquey as other schools nor as judgmental. The football games are a great experience, Spirit Night is a blast and the theatrical performances are amazing. There are so many events to go to and you'll never be alone!
