The teachers that are at this school are amazing. Every single one cares about you and really connects with each student. They understand you have a life outside of just school and accommodate with that for homework. They have a variety of different classes to take, so you can find what really interests you and go on that path. They also have 4 different diploma programs that you can do, IB, AP, Regents with Advanced Designation and just a Regents diploma. This gives students a variety of options to choose from when finishing out their secondary schooling.

My time at Hilton High School was one of the most enjoyable I've ever had and I will miss it dearly when I graduate this year, I have met some life long friends and I will always remember what I did here and what I experienced. The school has some very good classes in the STEM fields and these fields are where the best teachers are found in the entire school, other Project Lead the Way classes are available and are taught by great teachers. The music and sports programs are also known around the area and do great in competition, having participated in both I enjoyed my time there. Administration was poor and blew many situations out of proportion, I believe with time they will figure out what the best way to lead the school to be a great place to learn again.
Hilton High School is a public school accepting of all students. Our facilities are clean and presentable. We have staff that is always around. They are helpful and actually want to be there for the students. I know of multiple faculty members who would willingly assist, not only me but other students as well. Hilton has a diverse collection of courses. Part of this is due to the school participating in the International Baccalaureate program. We have an extended amount of science classes, to business course, all the way to IB Film and IB Theatre. If I could improve anything about Hilton, I would improve the Fine Arts sections of our school. Our stage, chorus, and band rooms all need care. Our Art rooms could use some love. We certainly have enough students who enjoy them.
