Choosing Hartford Public Schools

Hartford Public Schools (HPS) is committed to ensuring our families are engaged and inspired by the school options we have to offer. Our school choices include specialized district schools and theme-based magnet schools; each offers a unique curriculum that prepares our students to be successful in and beyond school. Additional opportunities are offered through our partnerships with the CT State Department of Education’s Regional School Choice Office (RSCO) and other educational providers.

HPS provides more educational opportunities to Hartford residents and suburban families in the Greater Hartford region. View our School Selection Guides to learn more about school options and the pathways to access them!
