I am a parent of a graduate from Hillwood High School and i also have a daughter that is currently a senior . Both of my children have received a great education through HHS. The teachers are caring and well educated themselves. They are dedicated to helping your child reach their potential. My oldest graduated, and is now attending college with a baseball scholarship. My daughter has been accepted to Auburn, Clemson and Mississippi State ( just a few) and is eligible for several scholarships as well. While attending Hillwood they were given opportunities to explore the "Academies ", which helps you choose a pathway of study in Health Sciences, Art/Communications, or Business / Hospitality etc. I am really impressed with the training areas and equipment provided for these studies. ( health sciences has recreated the inside of an ambulance to help teach real world procedures). My children have joined many clubs and activities; baseball, cheerleading, concert band, National Honor society, and the Ambassador program which are just a few of the many activites available . The school does have its issues. The building is very old and in need of repair as well as the stadium and fields. The school has had student issues in the past that has led to a negative reputation. i have friends with children at private schools with these very same issues but it just isnt made public knowledge. Overall, the students and families here are kind and care about the future of their child and the school. We are located in an upscale neighborhood, but many families in the area attend private schools so community financial support is low. There are plans to build a new school in the very near future that should alleviate many of these issues and allow the public to focus on some of the great things this school is accomplishing rather than the negatives from the past. Hope this helps-

One has graduated (with honors) and another child is currently enrolled at Hillwood. It is full of excellent teachers and administration. They will go the extra mile for you. They have prepared my children for the real world. I wish more parents were involved with the PTA. It is the only thing lacking at Hillwood.

I have been a teacher at Hillwood since 2010 and I couldn't ask for a better school to work at or a better group of students to teach. Since 2010 Hillwood has made major progress with end of course test scores, ACT scores, and has the highest graduation of any non-magnet MNPS school. Hillwood also offers three nationally recognized "Model Career Academies" and 17+ Advanced Placment courses. I would send my own kids to Hillwood!
