Hillsborough High School Reviews
Hillsborough High School is well-equipped to give you some of the best education your child could want. Teachers are well-educated and lesson plans are organized and structured and I really feel like I'm ready for college. Courses that are mandatory such as Financial Literacy teaches students practical knowledge on how money works in the real world and gives insight as to how to fill out taxes, create a retirement plan, and a budget (most schools don't teach you this.) They've also implemented technology as a resource and this has had a huge impact on kids as they now have information readily available to them in class.
HHS is a great place to learn and grow up. Like every school, it has its flaws, namely diversity and the layout of the school. Getting from one class to another in five minutes is sometimes impossible depending on your location in the building. Students, however, all share Spirit Night together in May, competing against the other classes. This is the best night of the year and everybody looks forward to somehow getting involved, whether through the dance, the games, the video, or just cheering on their friends. HHS has a lot of sports and clubs for students to choose from, allowing them to figure out their interests.
The school is very qualified to educate kids in subjects that are required to graduate the school. They are also equipped with the right technology and resources to help the students out anyway they can. The school has a lot of great teachers that love their job and the subject they teach however not all of them are the best. I realize that not every teacher can be the "best" but they can possibly do a little better than they already do. As someone who wants to be a teacher I like to see what I can learn from the good ones and from the not so good ones. Overall, I cannot complain about the high school I loved my time there and wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else.
