New Student / Back to School Guide
Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Hillsborough County Public Schools website! We strive to keep our parents, families, supporters and community members informed of news and events that are occurring at our School District.
Our vision is to prepare students for more than graduation – we prepare students for life! We seek to connect our students to their future through engaging curriculum and a staff that is ready to help them fulfill their dreams for college and careers.
Our parents, educators and community partners collaborate to create a pathway for students to achieve success. We are grateful for the trust you have placed in our school system, which includes 273 schools and more than 24,000 teachers.
