Ridge Hill School

Project Discovery        

At Ridge Hill School, we continue to develop the school-wide theme of discovery through our Project Discovery. To date, this program has focused on exposing students to the importance of environmentalism, mainly through recycling.  As an expansion of Project Discovery, the Discovery Garden was created and is a wonderful addition to Project Discovery.  


 The Discovery Garden serves as an outdoor learning center for students across all grade levels and is connected to learning in all content areas. The impact of this garden is tremendous and far-reaching. Research shows that students’ attendance, as well as their interest in school and academic performance (especially in science) increases significantly when a school utilizes a garden as a learning space. It is our hope that students will learn life-long skills, such as making healthy food choices, sustainability and taking care of the environment through their association with the garden.







It is the mission of Hamden Public Schools to ensure all our students learn to the best of their potential each and every day they are entrusted to our care.
