Hamden has eight elementary schools, one middle school (grades 7 and 8) and one high school (grades 9-12). We also have an alternative high school (Hamden Collaborative Learning Center - HCLC) and Alice Peck Learning Center.

Elementary school attendance zones are defined by home address, so students are assigned to attend a specific elementary school based on where they live. Through the 3R Initiative, elementary attendance zones will change in the coming years and magnet schools will be incorporated into our elementary school offerings.
