Hillsboro is a growing city, but still holds true to it's small town roots. Even though it is growing, the town does not have as many issues as some of the surrounding communities. Best of all we are only minutes away from South St. Louis County. Unfortunately, the town does lack entertainment for the youth of the community. Hillsboro does have several non-fast food and fast food dining establishments. These provide excellent employment opportunities for the local youth.

Hillsboro is a very safe town to live in with that small town feel. I love living there. The school district is above average and the teachers seem genuinely concerned with there students. I love the fact that it is like country living but very close to city amenities. Jefferson Community College is located in Hillsboro and offers a great education at a very low cost.
Great place to live, lots of land. There aren't too many fast food options, but there are a couple good restaurants in town. Great community college, decent public schools.
