In 1851, Hillsborough opened its first classroom within George Howard’s home to educate six enrolled students. In 1917, South Hillsborough School was built to serve students within grades K–8. The school serves the whole town as the only middle school. It currently enrolls about 550 students in grades sixth, seventh and eighth. North and West Hillsborough Schools were built in the early 1950s to accommodate the growth within the town. William X. Crocker Middle School opened in 1959. After the passage of the Measure B bond in 2002, each of the Hillsborough Schools were renovated and modernized.
There are four schools within the Hillsborough City School District, three elementary schools and one middle school.
