Welcome Letter from the Principal

Welcome to the 2020-21 academic school year at Hamden High School. 

Since 1935, Hamden High School has stood as a proud landmark in town- one that represents opportunity, tradition and excellence. For so many generations of students, Hamden High School is also a personal symbol of enduring friendships and fond memories.

Today, we continue these traditions as a school family that supports each student through a meaningful, purposeful and rigorous learning experience. The staff at Hamden High School is fully committed to assisting all students in thinking critically, acting honorably and living passionately. 

Our goal is for students to graduate with the knowledge and confidence needed for both their personal fulfillment and the betterment of their communities. Their voice, reflection and perseverance are integral pieces in becoming global citizens that can effect positive change in our world. Hamden High continues to be the first step for our students as they embark on that important journey. 

Thank you for sharing your students with us, and please know it is truly an honor to serve as your principal.

Principal Nadine Gannon
