Hamden High provides not only a great education to all but also to those kids who are looking for something extra, be it sports, band or orchestra, drama, etc. Many dedicated teachers and staff too! Our three kids attended and all were well prepared for college and beyond.

Hamden High is wonderful. We could not ask for a better high school for our children. If you want academics, HH has them. Great clubs? Check. Sports? check. Want your child to learn to understand people who are different from him or herself? Check. Hamden High is a very special place. If you're lucky enough to live in Hamden, you're lucky enough- definitely give this high school a look. We are so glad we didn't miss it.

We have had a wonderful experience at Hamden High- it's truly a hidden gem. Our son transitioned from a very small, private school to this high school, and he has been so happy here. The academics are terrific, at least in the high level classes. The teachers have been engaging, supportive and accommodating. We love how truly diverse this school is- there is no way this could be duplicated in the private sector. The resources for extracurriculars are amazing; any club or interest is available it seems. He is learning so much in every way at Hamden High- a great public school!

As a public school with 200 students it's difficult to address the varying needs of this population. It's as if they don't even try

I went to the school and took a honors classes. I got into every college I applied to. The school also offers a wide variety of sports, clubs, and elective classes
