Hilton Head Island High School Reviews
Transferring to Hilton Head my Freshman year, the joyful atmosphere and friendly students and staff made the switch so easy! The academics are amazing, and the sports programs are extremely competitive. I love my school!
The principal, Ms. O'Nan, clearly cares about the school and everyone in it. The faculty is great with the exception of few teachers who seem to be clueless as to communication with students. There are many teachers who stand out with their creative teaching methods. The majority of students obviously care about others and the rules and organization of the school. The school rules are clearly known by all of the students and when they are not followed the punishments are very fitting. The athletics are run and well-supported by the student body. Other programs such as the NJROTC and drama department are also terrific and a part of what makes the school great. Rigorous course loads are highly encouraged and there are many IBDP and IBCP students. There are many service clubs. The school feels like a big family most of the time. My only complaint is that the guidance counselors don't seem to care about you and only seem to care about the numbers you can add to the school's success.
The school is over 25 years old I should know my mother graduated 25 years ahead of me and it is still going strong. This is an excellent High School to attend and graduate from. All of the teachers will help with any and everything to help you succeed. Strive to Excel is and Excellent scholarship program their make sure they get in it freshman year and stay in it all year around. They had the up most safety when I attended as well as wonderful electives from Coop to Spanish Class. Best teachers their are Mr. Pilgreen and Mrs. White hands down! The only thing I wish they did more was show us how to apply for scholarships because I could have succeeded a whole lot more in life with that tool.
