Administrative House Information

Hamden High School serves a diverse population of more than 1700 students. To personalize the high school experience, Hamden High School is structured around a house system.  Each house is under the direction of an assistant principal, who is also referred to as the House Principal. The two terms are interchangeable. Students are assigned to one of four houses - each with its own administrator and support professionals who provide direct service to the students. Students also are assigned to a specific school counselor, (see below). In additional to these members, a school nurse and/or school psychologist also provide assistance.

Each House Principal maintains an office located apart from the Main Office of the school. Concerns regarding lockers, tardiness to school or class, discipline issues, early dismissal from school or other similar concerns should be addressed to the appropriate house office.
