Teaching & Learning


The academic skills and competencies students acquire in school lay the groundwork for their future successes in higher education and the workforce. Hamden Public Schools base their academic curricula on rigorous standards (National Common Core Standards in Language Arts and Mathematics).  We have high expectations for all of our learners in meeting these rigorous standards of achievment.  Many practices are in place to assure that every student has the opportunity to learn at high levels.

Find out more about core academic subjects by visiting our curriculum pages.
