Hamden Middle School for me was honestly very challenging in 7th grade I came from a school that had much lower standards and now I'm happy that I'm here as I feel like I will be able to go through high school and college by using the skills I learned here. The teachers are great, funny and love to help you learn new concepts I highly recommend Hamden Middle School!
The homework given here is great it is just the right amount usually you only have daily homework from Science, Math and your Language. English you get some projects and Social Studies gives homework sometimes its mostly quizzes and tests though.
Because you are left alone to do some projects so you must care about them, empathy because you do teambuilding in gym and compassion because you must have some sort of compassion for your fellow classmates in order to do well
This school defiantly develops persistence as if you do not try your hardest you will fail. I learned this my first year. And most defiantly grit you will discover how far you are willing to go for a good grade and you will discover just what type of person you are when it comes to deadlines will you settle for a C or will you strive for an A?
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.
