It should be "He hardly goes to school"

If you use 'hardly' ,as one of negative adverbs, at the beginning of your sentence, then you should follow 'inversion' rules=> Hardly does he go to school! This is just to put more emphasis on the adverb!

The technical rule is, adverbs of frequency (hardly) go before the verb (goes).
The only exception is when the verb is to be - then the adverb comes after.
