Why Hartford Union High School?
The School District of Hartford Union High School is one that is unique in many ways but goes above and beyond to serve our students. The District is one of ten union high schools in the state that serves seven K-8 schools in our 225-square-mile radius.
Hartford Union High School faculty and staff serve 1400 students and their families. The District is consistently keeping abreast with best practices in education in order to provide students with cutting edge opportunities, facilities, and up-to-date, research based, educational practices. Our schools technology initiative began in 2009, and every student has been 1:1, with a Windows-based laptop, allowing for consistent infusion across the curriculum.
Students can choose from a wide variety of course options that include Advanced Placement, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), PLTW (Project Lead the Way) Biomedical Sciences, Computer Science, Youth Apprenticeship, Technical College Accredited, among regular course offerings. As personalizing learning has become a regular educational approach in schools, Hartford Union High School has begun to also offer course options to highlight this best practice. Freshmen and Sophomores have the opportunity to participate in a Co-Hort program that allows for project-based learning with a personalized plan.
Beyond the classroom, students have the opportunity to participate in a vast amount of athletic opportunities as well as organizational and club options. As a District one of our priorities is working towards making sure there is “club for every kid” whether that be an athletic, educational focused, professional group, or hobby; every student can find something to be a part of outside of the school day.
Hartford Union High School District is truly a comprehensive high school that allows students to prepare and become world-class learners and citizens through all that it has to offer.
