    I'm giving football coach Santagata 1 star...if I could give him none that would fit. Never in all my years of having children in school have I came across a such an unprofessional rude disrespectful so called educator. I asked him a question about my son because I was concerned...and you would have thought I called the mans mother a bad word or something the way he came at me. The first thing out of his mouth was my son was suspended and for him to bring his equipment in because he didn't like my tone. I'm a native New Yorker and I speak a little different than people in Hilliard and before I could explain myself he was cutting me off and telling me to get out if I wanted my son to stay on the team. I've never been so demeaned in my life. He scolded me like I was a child or a battered wife. I truly believe if my husband would have asked him the same question his tone would have been different.

    The school is a safe place but the administrative office tends to care less about academics. Sports recognition is always honored more than academic excellence. Also I have never seen the principal anywhere or heard of him till this 11th grade year and many people hold negative comments about the decisions that the administrative office makes as a whole.

    I am simply IN LOVE with this school <3. The staff and administration couldn't be anymore friendly and warm and welcoming and they are always there to help solve problems and help us learn. The extracurricular activities are numerous and strong there is something for everyone. We have so many classes to choose from and so many great teachers to teach them. We have an enormous endless amount of school spirit and pride for our school and we support everyone. Almost everyone in our school gets along we truly are one big family we all love eachother and have great respect for eachother. I very much want to become a teacher at this school when I graduate. Like I said in love with this school I absolutely one hundred percent adore it<3

    Great school with an overwhelming amount of support from teachers that care about each and every student. The adminstration is there supporting every student and it shows in how well the school is doing with test scores and AP classes. There is tons of clubs and electives to choose fun and creates a great enviroment for children to learn in. The school is overcrowded though which is the reason why a third high school is being built.
