School Options

  • At Hillsborough Schools, parents can choose from various schools based on their child’s interests and way of learning. Options can be based on location, curriculum, interests or system of learning (either brick-and-mortar or virtual schools, for example).

    Your Attendance Area School is the school zone assigned based on your home address. Find zoned school and enter your address to see the elementary, middle and high schools for which your child is zoned.

    Disclaimer: All school attendance boundaries are subject to change by School Board action. The maps and descriptions are provided for convenience only.
