Established in 1859 as New Haven High School, Hillhouse High School is New Haven's oldest public high school. Originally located on Orange Street, it adopted its nickname, "The Academics", in acknowledgment of its close association with Yale University. In 1863, the school was moved to a building at Orange and Wall Streets, which was replaced in 1871 by a new school. In 2021, the school served as a center for New Haven's mass vaccination effort.
