    Overall Experience: Hillsboro High School is one of the most unique schools I have been to in my life. In the two short years I have attended this school I have learned many things. This school is very different from my previous schools, and it has a distinct clic problem, which is noticeable as soon as you enter the building. I have also learned that many kids, even my age, have gone through many struggles, including losing a parent. The thing about this school is that many people who attend are very stuck in their ways but once you find the diamonds through the rocks you'll be just fine.

    Extracurriculars: We can't seem to keep the same teachers from year to year so the clubs and organizations suffer

    Health & Safety: We have an officer on campus most of the times. This officer knows the students and interacts with us regularly. There is a sign in computer in the front office for all visitors. New security cameras were put in this year.
