Superintendent of Schools Gary Highsmith

Welcome to Hamden Public Schools!

Gary Highsmith is the new Hamden Superintendent!

Note from Mr. Highsmith:
As your Superintendent, my goal is to ensure all students receive quality educational experiences throughout their time in school, and it is my hope that these experiences will help them to be happy and successful in the future. We have a skillful and caring group of faculty, administrators, and other staff in Hamden, all committed to providing the best for our students and their families.

I look forward to our work together in making Hamden Public Schools an outstanding school district by any measure.
