Dear Parents, Guardians and Guests,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Parish Hill Middle High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website.  Parish Hill offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes instruction in the arts, business, family and consumer science, culinary, health, language arts, math, 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.

I am proud of our dedicated faculty who collaborate to ensure all students find success, discover passions, and develop talents.  This team approach, in combination with the support of our parents and commitment to our core values and beliefs, enabled Parish Hill to graduate 100% of its students two years in a row.  Based on the Connecticut Next Generation Accountability Index, Parish Hill ranked in the top 27% of all Connecticut public high schools.  All Parish Hill sports teams made CIAC post-season tournaments last year, and our music programs have continued past successes by receiving platinum and gold ratings at regional music festivals in 2016.  Our annual Empty Bowls event raised over five-thousand dollars to support local charities and food pantries and was 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.

Sincerely,

Brian Tedeschi

Principal
