HMS Handbook

Welcome HMS Students & Families!


Our Dragon Pride Expectations


Hamden Middle School uses Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to ensure that all students succeed.  PBIS is a proactive approach to improve school safety and to promote positive behavior.  The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.  At its heart, PBIS calls on schools to teach students positive behavior strategies, just as they would teach about any subject-- like reading or math.
