Students at HSC

QuamarPromise

The student body at HSC is diverse, drawing from New Haven and surrounding areas. We take pride in being a school that encourages our students to be critical thinkers and to question the world around them. Through their work in and out of our school building, our students work to establish a strong educational foundation and a more just society.

HSC students also participate in a variety of enriching activities: Educational Center for the Arts, the Center for Creative Youth Summer Arts Residency at Wesleyan University, the University of New Haven Outstanding High School Senior Program, the New Haven All-City Honors Band , the Yale Peabody Evolutions Program, the Yale High School Cooperative Language Program, and more.

We are so proud of Solanlly Canas and Chastity Berrios who were accepted into the University of New Haven Outstanding High School Seniors Program! Solanlly and Chastity will be full time college students at UNH this semester rather than second semester seniors. Read more in the New Haven Independent article featuring these amazing young women.

HSC students Ben Robinson and Alif Al-Biruni were accepted into the New Haven All City Honors Band.  They’ll be rehearsing weekly with a Yale music professor, and giving a concert on May 11th.

Shawn Morris (senior) and Alif Al Biruni (sophomore) participated in the Yale Morse Summer Music Academy, an intensive 4-week program in which selected NHPS music students work with Yale Department of Music students and faculty. The students performed twice a week in Sprague Hall on the Yale campus. The Academy’s grand finale was a performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. (photo available)

HSC students Shawn Morris (senior), Alif Al Biruni (sophomore), and Kumal Troutman (junior) represented HSC by performing in the Jazz Haven’s New Haven Jazz Festival on August 17th. The three HSC students teamed up with alumni from Edgewood’s Jazz Band, led by HSC music teacher Nate Trier. The group played classic jazz standards by Jaco Pastorius, Joe Zawinul, and and Herbie Hancock. TS Monk, son of jazz musician Thelonius Monk, headlined the festival.
