Core Values

We aspire to educate students in a rigorous, diverse and supportive learning environment.  All students at Hamden High School are challenged to become socially, culturally and globally aware as well as civically active and productive. Our students will demonstrate responsible personal behaviors and achieve self-reliance in order to obtain college/career readiness skills. Our students are further expected to be caring and productive individuals who are resilient and resourceful problem solvers. We believe students learn best when they are given real-world learning opportunities, and when adults work collaboratively to ensure a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment.
