    "My child is finishing her second year at HMS (8th grade). Our experience is that Hillsborough Middle School is a welcoming, safe and academically rich environment. Many clubs and events for the kids. Educational and rewarding field trips. The atmosphere is positive and surprisingly nurturing, at least from our viewpoint. It is a benefit that the 7th/8th graders are not mixed in with high schoolers, it helps retain a more innocent tone. Seems to be a lot of school spirit and overall every student I've asked says they love HMS. I think a few years ago perhaps it was different? It is a good training ground for high school - lots of variety, different teachers, hands on learning, opportunities for oral presentations and use of technology. Excellent music. Related arts such as Home Economics/Consumer Science, industrial arts ("wood shop") and world language education are exceptional and contribute to well rounded students who love going to school. Teachers respond quickly. It would be nice if they had more extensive outdoor areas but it is a very pleasant and cheerful physical environment. Colorful posters and student work adorn the walls. Many dedicated students and athletes attend."

    "I have to agree with the last write, at woodfern elementary the teacher were exceptional but once we entered in the intermediate and middle school everything went down hill. Now my child is a straight A student but Hillsborough tries to be Montgomery class A school which we are not. It's sad how our taxes pay for a school district that harbors bullies and condems parents who actually care about their children. I hope that Gov. Christie really comes down on school districts we have to many Vice Principals who are lousy at their jobs and the Principals don't get invovled where they should. I rate Hillsborough Middle school an F. It's really sad that we don't have an exceptional school district."

    "Overall, Hillsborough School district schools are blue ribbon. Classroom size varies, depending on honors/special education curriculum program; however is not exceedingly large for public schools. Excellent educational resource programs, with teachers who are extremely skilled in their designated fields of study. Principalship is of strong leadership. Disciplinary programs are strict. Many extra-curricular activites to choose from, ranging from academic clubs to recreational sports. Overall educational curriculum is good. Math and language arts curriculum is demanding and great measure of preparation for high school level."

    "Hillsborough Middle School is the best middle school a kid could ever go to. The teachers are above phenmominal and help you every step of the way. There is something for every level ability whether it's education related, or sports. There are a wide variety of clubs and activities for a 7th or 8th graders looking for some fun. I believe that Hillsborough Middle School should win an award for its excellence."

    "Actually, i am a 7th grade student, age 13. I love Hillsborough, and I love this school, as well as ARIS and Sunnymead Elementary, that I also went to. The middle school has alot of programs. sports include soccer, cross country, basketball, wrestling, field hockey, lacrosse, and softball. and there are so many clubs i cannot even count. i havent joined a club i didnt like.. and our sports teams are amazing. each marking period for 7th & 8th grade theres woodshop, home ec, music, and art. good teachers, good projects too. and theres alot of languages you can take.. spanish, french, italian, and german. in high school you can do more, obviously. parents arent TOO involved, but for field trips theres class moms, parents sell stuff in the book fair, and they can have conferences with teachers to discuss their kid's grades, or just email them. HMS rocks!"
