The teachers try to balance the work for the students in order for them to have a life outside of school that does not center on academics. The academics are rigorous and the teachers understand this, so they provide out-of-school tutoring, when they really don't have to. They try to engage the class with different activities, sometimes simulating our habits through social media in order to be more approachable. They always communicate clearly, and typically they provide their professional and personal email address so it's easier for the students to reach them.

I was in a club called International Teen Outreach Program (ITOP), which targets assimilating international students to American society through community involvement. I LOVED IT! I looked forward to volunteering and knowing I was making a difference in my community. It was taken out my junior year, sadly.

In my opinion, Hillsboro High School is a very caring school where we can learn essential information in a culturally aware environment. I love that they are open to learning about new cultures, and the environment is ethnically-friendly. I also love that we are an international school that focuses on getting students ready for the Global World.
