Mount Hebron High School is a great school with lots of opportunities to excel academically and athletically. I like the fact that it has good diversity. Parents are very invested in their children and always step up to volunteer in various events and activities. The school administration is very supportive of the teachers, students and parents alike. The school has a strong athletic and marching band program. My school has a very close knit and community feel which I really cherish. My high school years was very memorable and I made life long friends there. Also, I feel that I am college ready after leaving the Mt. Hebron because of the challenging courses I was able to take along with many life long skills I have learned as well.

Mount Hebron is, without a doubt, the best possible school I could have attended when preparing for my future. The teachers really try to help out the students in every way possible. The only major thing that I would suggest should change is the student participation in supporting the teams and clubs that represent Mount Hebron. It is a wonderful feeling when we all get together to cheer on and take pride in our school. Of course there's always going to be something that we find to complain about and the school has it's minor flaws, but everyone who attends this school is fortunately privileged to have knowledge and a future easily handed to them. We are challenged to reach past our own ideas of our limits so that we can surprise ourselves with how much we can achieve. Go Vikings!
I love how there are so many different opportunities at Mount Hebron to get involved in the community. There are so many different clubs to serve the diverse interests of Hebron students, such as African Affairs Club, South Asian Club, Millionaires club, and dozens more. One thing think the school could improve upon is providing more college/scholarship/academic/future opportunities for students in regular level classes.
