Bear Path is a jewel of a public school. Our school has vary high standards for student conduct and constantly aims to better student academic achievement. We have a strong and active PTA board, with very good family participation. There is no need to pay for private elementary education if you are lucky enough to live in the Bear Path district.
Bear Path School is one of the best schools in Hamden. The teachers are friendly and resourceful. All the students are hard working. My kids attend Bear Path and they love it!
Bear Path is a culturally diverse school with the most motivated kids around.
I would like to congratulate Sally Kammerbeek and the entire staff at Bear Path. My daughter went to Alice Peck which is a small community elementary school. It was closed for lack of enrollment and the children were sent to Bear Path, an older school that had just been remodeled from inside out. I was apprehensive sending a child who had 12 fellow students per classroom to a classroom size of 22. Who would spend one-on-one time with my daughter? Well, we are in our 3rd year at Bear Path and we couldn't be happier. The after (and during) school curriculum, activities and tutoring offered are top of the line. The teachers are devoted, and willing to donate their time for the students. I work full time and am not able to attend many of the meetings and functions but through communications I feel well informed and confident my child gets the best!
