Hillsborough County Schools

Need to know what schools are in the area?


Hillsborough county is the 8th largest school district in the nation. Figuring out exactly what you want in a school is not always a simple task. When you imagine the ideal school for your child, you may picture colorful classrooms, dynamic teachers and a variety of extracurricular programs. 

Some things to consider:

  • How far can my child travel to school?

  • Do I need transportation provided, or can I get my child to school another way?

  • Do I need before- or after-school care for my child?

  • Does my child have any physical, emotional, linguistic or learning needs that require special attention?

  • Are modern school facilities important to me?

  • What about technology?

  • Would my child be better suited to a small school environment, or would a large school be better? 

  • Do I want a school with several grade levels, such as K-12, where my child can remain for several years?

  • Extracurricular Activities

  • How important are music and art programs?

  • Are sports important? Which ones?

  • Do I want a school where parents are expected to be very involved with activities and decisions?

  • Are foreign language classes important? Which languages?

Don't forget that the best way to find out whether a school is the right place for your child is to visit in person.
