Hamden Hall Country Day School

Educating students in PreSchool through Grade 12
Hamden Hall is a community of students, parents, faculty, and staff who care deeply about each other and our school. We all work toward the common goal of instilling a love of learning and personal discovery in our students by creating a safe, challenging, and joyful classroom environment built upon developmentally appropriate curriculum rooted in the most up-to-date research and best practices. From our Early Childhood gardeners to our sixth-grade performers, our initiatives continually inspire students and foster individual growth, self-knowledge, and social responsibility. At Hamden Hall, we believe that a strong and healthy partnership between the school and parents contributes greatly to our ability to offer an exceptional educational experience for our students. As partners, we share this responsibility and want you to know that we will do our very best to provide your children with a productive and enjoyable school year.
