Hillsboro High School consists of over 50 certified staff members and over 850 students. 100 percent of our teachers are highly qualified by federal standards and several are also qualified to teach on-site college courses. The curriculum is driven by ACT “Quality Core” (College and Career Readiness Standards). We currently offer Advanced Placement college courses including English 12, Calculus, Biology, US History, US Government and Politics. Three PSEO courses offered on campus include English 11, Advanced Math Honors and Honors Chemistry. Many elective courses including: Band, Choir, Drama, Agricultural Education, and Industrial Tech/”Project Lead The Way ”(PLTW) provide students with a well-rounded educational experience. Ag-Ed and PLTW have the potential to lead toward college credit at Sinclair or Southern State Community College. The average ACT score of our students taking the ACT is 21.7.
The High School offers several activities/organizations for students to be involved in including, NHS, Student Council, FFA and 16 varsity athletics. Athletics include tennis, soccer, cross country, track/field, football, baseball, volleyball, wrestling, golf, softball, basketball. The Athletic Department is also looking forward to a proposed athletic facility at the site of the new building. Currently, most outdoor athletics take place at the old site across town. This addition is needed to provide a safe environment that promotes healthy lifestyles and competition.
Although we have state of the art facilities and technology, the most valuable thing HHS has to offer is the caring and dedicated staff that strives to prepare students for college and/or careers. Our teachers meet weekly to discuss student achievement and ensure the success of all students. We encourage students to come to school every day ready to learn and put forth their best effort. When students put forth their best effort and master the content, good grades will follow.
Thank you for your continued support. We invite and welcome you to be a part of our team.
