Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Guests:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school website. Parish Hill offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes instruction in allied health (new this year), art, business, family and consumer science, culinary, health, language arts, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, technology education and world languages. In addition to core academic programs, Parish Hill offers a variety of options for students to earn certificates and college credit through collaboration with the University of Connecticut and local community colleges.
Our dedicated faculty collaborates regularly to ensure all students find success, discover passions, and develop talents. This team approach, in combination with our great parent support and commitment to our core values and beliefs, enabled Parish Hill to function at a high level. Based on the 2016 Connecticut Next Generation Accountability Index, Parish Hill ranked in the top third of all Connecticut public high schools. All Parish Hill sports teams made post-season tournaments last year, and our music programs continued its tradition of success by receiving platinum and gold ratings at regional music festivals in 2017. Our 2017 Empty Bowls event raised almost six-thousand dollars to support local charities and food pantries and was previously awarded the Connecticut State Department of Education/Connecticut Association of Schools 2016 Challenge to Educational Citizenship Award. Experiences like these are small examples of how Parish Hill prepares its students for 21st Century life.
On behalf of the Parish Hill community, I look forward to meeting you at Open House on September 14th at 6:00 p.m. in the David Syme Auditorium to introduce staff and briefly discuss the new school year. Have a great year!
