Congratulations to Hamden - named as one of the best cities to live in America by ChamberOfCommerce.org! The organization ranked towns and cities across the country, and then came up with the best in each state. Five factors were considered in making their rankings: employment (number of establishments, median earnings); housing (owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, monthly housing costs); quality of life (work commute, poverty levels); education (percentage with a bachelor’s degree or higher); and health (obesity ratios).

The Hamden Board of Education has recently become aware that an academic paper written by a Yale undergrad student has been circulated throughout social media. While the Board appreciates the interest and concerns expressed in this assignment and supports academic freedom, there are many flaws with what this paper concludes. The student’s paper asserts that the Hamden BOE had been influenced by a small group of privileged citizens to deviate from its goal of racially balancing its District’s elementary schools. In response to the paper being circulated, the Board wishes to express its commitment to the 3R process and its anticipated outcomes. Read More
In addition to excelling in both state and international marketing competition and raising funds and awareness for a variety of charities, the Hamden High School DECA students also manage and operate their high school's School Store. The store specializes in designing and creating custom apparel for the high school, other schools, teams, organizations, and businesses.
The most recent ordered completed by the students was tee shirts for the Dunbar Hill Volunteer Fire Department. To the delight of the DECA members, the fire department arrived at Hamden High School to pick up their order in a fire truck. Some of the DECA students were able to pose with the firefighters for a photo with the fire truck in front of the school.
Hamden DECA would like to thank the Dunbar Hill Volunteer Fire Department for their continued support.
