Hillsborough was established in 1885, so it's a pretty old school. It had a nice gothic look to it on the outside, until a couple of monthes ago. Now there are about 20 to 30 portables on the school's front lawn, and it looks horrible. Hillsborough was one of the nicest looking schools in the county but on it's outside just matches the inside, its ghetto. The air conditioning works every once in a while, in half the rooms, the drop-down ceiling panals that cover the orginal roof have actually dropped down on the floor and on people. Paint is coming of over all the walls in every room, other than in the places where there are holes in walls. And in these holes rats live. Not enough room to finish all my thoughts, but other than the portables, I love it here, so get rid of them. Peace. Dave
this school needs more structure for the average grade and below grade children.My interaction with the school has been some what of a challenge vs. past high school.
Our experience has been primarily with the IB part of the school and has been mostly positive.
My experience is limited to my son's I. B. program, which is a small part of the school. Overall I am satisfied with the I. B. program and the school.
