About NHPS

Our vision for New Haven Public Schools is to give all of our students a chance to rise – to learn and grow and pursue their dreams. That is what New Haven School Change is all about – parents, teachers, principals, school staff and the community coming together to support our young people so they can achieve success in college, career and life.
We believe to our core that this city and this team of educators are changing the world for our kids.  And we are doing it.  Graduation rates are up.  College persistence rates are improving.  Literacy, math, and science skills are strengthening.  Our art, music and athletics programs are vibrant. As a community, we are generating energy and momentum for our students, from Kindergarten Canvass to the Promise Scholarship program.
