Indian Hill High School is best school ever! I came here at 2015 and I was new to the America. I knew nothing about this country and about the people, but students in Indian Hill High School made me feel that this was my second home in the America. The teachers helped me a lot not only in the classes, but also out of classes. I had never received discrimination from any student or teacher, they were been patient and nice. I love the school.

Indian Hills has people with all different points of view on hundreds of different topics. Socio-economic classes were mixed to a degree and it gave the chance to talk and debate issues in return. The staff and teachers relate and become your greatest resource by teaching lessons that apply beyond just a high school classroom. There's always room for improvement, and the area that Indian Hills is lacking is a direct connection to the superintendents and faculty who run the school. In many cases of discomfort, teachers even aren't allowed to solve the situation and it leaves little room for the students to make a change on a high level, such as the lack of contracts given to teachers. However, this doesn't take away the fact that Indian Hills is made up of an amazing student body that will always accept each other, but the miscommunication between administration and others can be an annoying inconvenience.
Indian Hills is a great school for education, making friends, and having a good experience. I would want to change being able to take classes that are harder however, because it is a challenge to move up from a CPE course to and Honors course due to the long process. I was a bit stressed out however, because I took difficult classes, and the difference between Honors and CPE courses is very large, as the Honors classes are so much harder than CPE. I believe that Indian Hills is a good school and I enjoyed my time.
