Hinsdale Central High School Reviews
Hinsdale Central High School is a great school! While the academics are demanding, the teachers are amazing and are always willing to work before/after school with students who need help. While the school does have a "white preppy" vibe, it is a great mix of people who are interested in almost anything you can think of. Finding at least one person who has similar interests is not difficult and finding friends among this friendly group of people. The amount of honors and AP classes is amazing, along with the huge assortment of clubs. Overall, the school is a great place for every type of student!
I absolutely loved my experience at Hinsdale Central College. People are so accepting and loving. The teachers are people of lovely qualities who love to help their students and have a great understanding of their subjects that they teach. The blend between those of honor levels and regular levels is almost perfect. They prevent students from feeling bad about themselves. Overall, one of the most excellent institutions that I have ever attended!
The school is great. It's in a wonderful location, everyone is extremely friendly and supportive. The quality of academics and athletics are both through the roof! There is every possible type of resource available and the school constantly gets improvements every year, in fact next year all students will get their own chromebooks! This school is everything and more of what a high school should offer, it is truly the best of the best. If you are thinking about sending your child there, all I have to say is: Expect Greatness.
