Educational Excellence Since 1912
Hamden Hall Country Day School
Educating students in PreSchool through Grade 12

Ms. Janis Festini Hayes P 2022, 2024

"I decided long ago that my focus had to be my children’s education in an environment where they can grow and become leaders of their own destiny.  Hamden Hall has been exactly that, the small classes, the diversity, and the many sports make Hamden Hall a community not just a school.  The student section of the bleachers at any of the games is attended by students, parents, and staff members alike, all cheering for their friends supporting their fellow Hornets.  Our Hornets come in all different sizes from preschoolers all the way to college ready individuals.

New ideas bring new clubs which are always popping up like the new 1600 club (practice and education for the SAT’s) or the Hispanic Student Union or maybe the Amnesty club or perhaps, Model U.N., Investment club, you name it, they have it.

The opportunities presented to the students are endless.  The staff prides themselves in helping students achieve their goals until they feel accomplished and fulfilled.  By the time the student reaches 12th grade they feel prepared to move on to college with confidence and the tools necessary to succeed.  As a parent, what more can we ask for?

I am very happy I attended the open house seven years ago.  Hamden Hall has exceeded my expectations. As my children continue with their journey, I am sure that the lasting friendships and experiences at Hamden Hall will last a lifetime."
