With its distinguished history and refined heritage, Hillsborough provides a coveted sanctuary for sophisticated families. Its prime location offers the perfect retreat from city life while ensuring easy access to the cultural delights of San Francisco.

In addition to its picturesque landscape, Hillsborough takes pride in its exceptional education system. The public schools in Hillsborough are known for their dedication to providing a high-quality education.

Furthermore, the town is home to three outstanding private schools: the Bridge School, specializing in serving students with physical and speech impairments, the esteemed Nueva School for elementary education, and the reputable Crystal Springs Uplands School, catering to students from elementary through high school.

As a residential-only town, Hillsborough supports the Burlingame and San Mateo libraries through its contributions and shares the Central County Fire department with neighboring Burlingame. The Concours d'Elegance, an annual highlight in Hillsborough, takes place on the golf course every August. Since its inception in 1956, this event has raised funds for the Hillsborough Schools Foundation and local philanthropic endeavors.
