A Message From the Superintendent
Welcome to the East Hampton Public Schools' website. We are a district committed to excellence in education in order to prepare and inspire our students to be innovative, responsible, contributing members of an ever-changing global society.
The district is driven by the East Hampton Public Schools' mission, in partnership with our community, to develop knowledgeable, responsible, productive citizens who effectively demonstrate problem-solving and communication skills, make informed decisions and respond appropriately and confidently to life’s challenges. As such, we are an innovative professional learning community that focuses on team work and collaboration to ensure continuous improvement for all.
East Hampton, also known as the Bell Town, is a wonderful rural community made up of five schools totaling approximately 1,950 students. The schools include Memorial Elementary School (PreK-3), Center Elementary School (4-5), East Hampton Middle School (6-8), East Hampton High School (9-12) and the East Hampton/East Haddam Alternative Learning Center. Connecticut Magazine ranked East Hampton as the 8th best small town to live in for its size based on educational success and cost. We are proud to share that East Hampton High School was ranked in the top 1,500 High Schools across the United States in U.S. News and World Reports, and ranked among the top 32 in our state. The High School also achieved AP Honor Roll status, a distinction awarded to only 26 districts in CT and 539 districts across the United States. Daily, all of our students, from Pre-k through grade 12, engage in powerful learning experiences, critical thinking, real world problem solving and collaborative experiences that are preparing them to be successful in college, career and life. Students are nurtured by a talented and dedicated professional team of teachers, administrators and support staff.
As a community that values educating the whole child, East Hampton students have the unique opportunity to explore interests, take initiative, set goals, exhibit ethical leadership and responsible citizenship through many varied community service opportunities across the grades. Through local and global experiences students learn to become compassionate contributors.
We celebrate and value the strong relationships and partnerships that have been established among and between the East Hampton Board of Education, administration, faculty, support staff, parents and community at large. The unified support on behalf of our children provides a desirable town in which to live and raise a family.
The purpose of our website is to keep parents, students, staff and community members informed of the outstanding services, resources and programs that are offered by the East Hampton Public Schools. We encourage you to explore this website as we work to enhance its features to you.
