A Welcome from
Superintendent of Schools
With New Haven Public Schools, the possibilities for your child’s future are endless. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our NHPS family.
Choosing a school for your child is an important decision, and we are committed to helping you learn about and understand your options and supporting you in making an informed decision. We have a wide array of excellent and unique schools that all share one common goal – to help your child rise to success.
Our School Choice program offers a portfolio of exciting magnet, neighborhood and charter choices, with themes like engineering and science, literacy and the arts, international communication, real world math, health and public safety. New Haven schools engage students in hands-on projects and teach them critical thinking schools that prepare them for success in college, career and life.
In August, get ready for the Kindergarten Canvass, when teams of school and community volunteers hit the streets to welcome new kindergarteners into our district. Also be sure to check out Parent University, a parent support network that offers free workshops and access to resources. It’s never too early to start thinking about college, so learn about the New Haven Promise college scholarship program.
The first and most important step is to read this guide and learn about your options. Our School Choice and Enrollment Office is on hand to answer any questions you have about the process. Welcome to New Haven Public Schools and we look forward to our journey ahead.
