A Message from Head of School Bob Izzo

Bob and Janet Izzo in the gazebo located in our quad. The Izzos have three children, all of whom are "lifers": Mike, who graduated from Hamden Hall in 2012 and the University of Notre Dame in 2016; Allison, who graduated in 2014 and from Wake Forest in 2018; and Christopher, who graduated in 2018 and is currently obtaining his master's at Boston College.

Welcome to our Hamden Hall Community. We use the word “community” quite a bit on campus because of the unwavering support provided to our students by our past and present families, our alumni, and our faculty and staff.

I have the distinct pleasure of a dual vantage point: I am both a Hamden Hall parent and educator, and I see firsthand the results of The Hamden Hall Experience. Our students excel because of the opportunities they are afforded and the guidance they are provided by our esteemed faculty. We set high standards and our students respond with unflappable poise and resilience.

Yet just as important as our rigorous curriculum, Signature Programs, and myriad extracurricular activities is the foundation of social responsibility, respect, and global citizenship that is fostered in our students during their time under the pines. We care about the kinds of people our students become after they graduate.

I know you’ll view these attributes for yourself as you peruse the pages of our website. In the meantime, here are some highlights that provide a quick overview of what we mean by The Hamden Hall Experience:
We care about the people our students become after they leave our halls.
Community service projects and social responsibility are inherent in a Hamden Hall education.
Participation is a core value, which is why we offer a broad selection of student clubs and activities.
The timeless traditions that Hamden Hall holds dear are meaningful within our school community.
Our robust performing and visual arts program garners national attention.
Fifteen to twenty percent of the seniors in our graduating classes commit to playing sports at the collegiate level.
