A Day in the Life Under the Pines
Hamden Hall Country Day School offers a dynamic private school setting that promotes educational excellence through high academic standards, small class sizes, and exceptional teaching. Our nurturing and inclusive community caters to student needs and delivers high-quality instruction through a cross-curricular learning environment.
Inside the Classroom: What’s Happening in Grade 9
Grade 9 is the year of exploration, discovery, and transition to the Upper School. Students have the opportunity to engage in exceptional academic class offerings such as Biology, English, Ancient Medieval History, Math and Language placement classes, and test prep programs.
An array of clubs and activities are offered with a two sport requirement. Leadership prospects arise with Student Government involvement while artistic students can throw in our Pottery Studio, hone their musical talents in the Choir, Instrumental and Ensemble bands, or explore character acting in Theatre productions.
Ninth-grade students have access to dedicated student leaders and mentors through the Princeton Peer Leadership Program, and appointed faculty advisors help make a seamless first-year passage or continuous success under the pines.
