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.

Went to Science Hill High School for 5 years(2008-12), when 8-9 grade was across from the 10-12 campus. Enjoyed the teachers that I had in classes like: biology, Food and nutrition (with cooking), Spanish 1and 2, problem stats. I enjoyed the two of 4+ counselors that I had. Went back o e day last week (2018) and saw some of the reconstructed area. Looks great!
Science Hill provides students with great opportunities to achieve goals that help them after high school. Challenging courses are available for students to take in order to better prepare them for college. Athletics are highly respected at Science Hill and can be extremely fun when the student body gets involved at school events. I would like to see changes in behavioral control of underclassmen for a more effective outcome, but overall its a great school. Go Toppers!
