    Overall Experience: All of my schooling has been in Hillsboro. I do not have a lot to compare it to. I do see that we DO NOT have teacher or parent support on a consistent basis. The same parents help with everything. Many parents don't even bother showing up for events. I do not know if I would choose a different path if I had it to do all over again. I have seen other schools that appear to be thriving and growing where our school does not seem to make progress from year to year.

    Teachers: I do not believe that our students will have the tools they need to enter college. We have not really been taught how to study. Most teachers do not engage students during lectures and class.

    Extracurriculars: We could have more extra caricular activities after school.

    Overall Experience: This school is fun. I like it because there aren't a lot of people so you know everybody and there aren't a lot of people in one classroom.
