Hillwood has gangs all over the place, and definately needs to take care of that. It is a very unsafe school for your child.
Hillwood Comprehensive High School contains ample amounts of educational opportunities and growth. Unfortunately that potential is lost within Hillwood's walls. Students and administrators are both at fault.there lies the fact a majority of the educators provided for this school have lost interest in the students and education all together. No longer will you find in every classroom a motivated educator who students can look up to and respect. Although Hillwood has many problems, I will say it has a lot of positive aspects such as 'Hillwood Pride Day' and selected 'Club Days.'
Hillwood has its problems and its advantages. It is one of a handful of International Baccalaureate schools in Tennessee. But the quality of teachers is either absolutely great or just horrible. The faculty gives little freedom to the students. Their lives are very controled there and when the go to college and have to figure out what to do on their own, it will a bit more scary for these kids. Structure is a great thing to have when carried out in the proper way. Hillwood has great educational resources available to it, but students are often distracted by the regulations handed down by the school offcials.
Hillwood High School is a pretty alright school. It does have its moments but it is not as bad as the news made ot out to be. The teaching is very good, amost as good as that of a maganet school. The only thing it needs to change is discipline which it is getting better at.
