James Hill House is a wonderful school despite the surrounding areas. The teachers i can honestly say dont waste time when it comes to teaching if they have a good attitude. If your not paying attention then thats on you and you have to stay after we never spend to much time on one thing. I actually switched High Schools a couple of times. Amistad ,Creed, Hill House. Anyway what needs to change is everyones maturity level. As far as teachers and staff. I seen a teacher argue with a student and the language the staff was useing no wonder that student was ready to fight him. Not only that the security guards and a few teachers need to be re-evaluated. Some come off as perverted. Im being honest through out this whole thing and yes i just started but i pay attention to everything.

I could honestly say I love Hillhouse, the school overall gives you a homey environment. Free space to be you're own person and not be judged for it. It's just that you have to have that boldness and courage to show it off. House has many resources and programs available to us students but I feel like most scholars aren't aware of that because the school doesn't advertise all of the programs as much as they should unfortunately.

The teaching styles are understandable because they have their own teaching methods but they are also willing to change them a bit for you to understand more. They communicated very well with us because they let us know when we were slacking and what we could do to get back on track. Their consistency in grading was fair enough, your grade was depending on how much work and effort you put in and it wasn't just based off of whether you got the answers right or wrong
