“The Hillsboro School is so much more than a facility or curriculum.”


We encourage families to apply as soon as interested in order to secure their space. If the grade is full when a student’s application is approved, the student is placed in our waiting pool and notified as soon as a position in the class becomes available.

The Admission Process
