Awards & Recognitions

Hamden Public Schools is very proud of the work being done by our students across the district, in-person and during distance learning.

Each month Superintendent Goeler honors them with the Superintendent's Student of the Month award.

See this month's students here.




The CAPSS Superintendent's Student Award is based on community service and service to others, academic prowess (relative to ability), and leadership service to the school community.

Students will be recognized at the February 9th Board of Education meeting.

The link to watch the meeting will be available on the Board of Education Meetings and Agendas page
