For 75 years now, Hillsboro High School has been a place of educational excellence.
Hillsboro International Baccalaureate World School in the year of 2013-2014 has experienced its most successful year in recent history. Our class of 2013 set a school record for the number of International Baccalaureate diplomas earned, and we anxiously anticipate our 2014 results. The growth in the IB Diploma Academy has brought attention from our community and the world. Additionally, The Washington Post has recognized Hillsboro as the 8th most rigorous high school in Tennessee. Hillsboro is the only public non-magnet school in the top 25. Our partnership with Vanderbilt University Center for Science Outreach has produced a group of students that are ready to take on the scientific community with their graduation from our Interdisciplinary Science and Research program. Through our partnership with the Confucius Institute at the University of Memphis, we share both teachers and students with the nation of China. Hillsboro’s focus on literacy this year has led to the highest test scores in English I and English II in Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. Your Hillsboro is alive and well!
We are very proud of these developments, and continue to add new programs to help our students succeed. Our budget has allowed us to add additional tutoring and resources for our students next year. We have hired 13 new staff members that come from California to Nashville. These teachers will bolster our excellent staff in meeting the needs of our students. Our school’s future is bright at Hillsboro High School, and we look forward to the next 75 years.
