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!

Mt. Hebron is a very diverse school community that caters to its students needs as best as it can. Most teachers are dedicated to their students and their learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are also encouraged to participate in clubs and sports, which helps to make each student feel as though they are part of the community!
Mount Hebron is a decent school, with generally good teachers and a clean environment. There’s nothing too special, either good or bad, about it— normal people, normal classes, normal teachers. You can learn from a wide variety of classes: there’s hard APs if you want to challenge yourself or you can take other notoriously easy classes for a relaxing high school experience.

There are some instances where teachers pick favorites or don’t care at all about their job, but that’s natural for a large school.
