I have been very happy with Hamden Middle School. I have one child who matriculated through this school and another currently attending. The facility is new and kept very nicely, Principal Levy is very approachable and dedicated. I have always felt welcome and respected when I came to the school for any reason. There is a great system for parent communication called the Parent Portal which really keeps you in touch with your child's progress and daily assignments. The school is extremely well organized into smaller teams of students and teachers which is so important when you have a student body as large as Hamden's. The team teachers work together in a coordinated effort and I have been impressed with the teaching staff. I would recommend this school.
Great area to live, very safe, nice town. Good school to have your child attend . It was built recently and the school is well equipped and the teachers are very organised. I love Hamden schools on the whole. If you are moving to New Haven try to live in Hamden town.
