I have gone here for almost four years and have many positive things to say about the school and faculty. There is a lot of support for the students who need it and a wide variety of after school clubs to join. The teachers there know the students and are there to help when the students need it. There are many options to help save money for students who can not afford things like food and clothes. The school offers many classes such as welding, nursing, cosmetology, architectural engineering and design, and much more. The school also has an Army JROTC program, which is helpful for anyone trying to get leadership or military experience in highschool.

Science Hill is a great school for everyone because there are many clubs, activities, and people to interact with. The food and schedule isn't the best , but Science Hill excels in academics and their staff is amazing. All teachers are there to teach, as well as, be our friends and family, that is why Hilltoppers are the best! Each grade has their assigned counselors where they prepare us for everything in the future from college admissions to dropping a class, Science Hill has the best preparedness plan and provides a safe place to learn and succeed. The social diversity among students is high and growing as more people attend Science Hill.
Science Hill High School has been a wonderful experience for me. Our school has something for every one. I am a member of SGA, HOSA, and BETA club. My teachers have helped me every step of the way. I have been able to meet with them and get questions answered easily. I have appreciated the support of the staff, faculty and students of my school and made some wonderful friends!
