My overall experience of Hillsboro, Tx is okay! I grew up here and I do love it, but there are things that I would like to see change. I believe that our schools are overcrowded and a new school needs to be built. I also would like to see more of the community become involved in the youth.
I've actually been in and out of Hillsboro Texas frequently over the years. It's a very simple place with a country setting that is somewhat calmer than my stay in the city of Dallas. Although the scenery does get somewhat tiresome, It has that "nostalgic" feeling but that probably because I attended college there for a while.
Sadly this is a rundown town with little interest in furthering education or advancing technology. There is a rampant drug problem and half the town seems stuck in the 1950s socially, morally and economically.
