Great Schools is a website that rates high schools across the country to help parents plan things out. The goal is to provide information on academics, equity, and environment of a school. However, high schools aren’t the only schools that should be rated. A continuation high school is where some students go when they need a little extra attention from the teachers and staff. These students still have a chance to graduate with a diploma and their parents should still pick the best school for them. In Orange County, many parents would like to hear Hillview High School reviews.
