At East Hartford Public Schools (EHPS), our vision speaks of Schools that are the Pride of our Community. To this end, we are committed to providing a high quality learning experience for Every Child, Every Day. Our core institutional beliefs focus our staff on the importance of their expectations, efforts, and growing competencies. We believe there is a solution to every challenge and, through an educational focus on positive relationships between home, school, and child, we will achieve extraordinary results. 



Our Students: EHPS proudly serves 7,060 diverse, talented and dynamic students between grades Pre-K and 12.  Our average grade ranges between 500-550 students with elementary class sizes around 21 students per class (dependent on grade level).  At EHPS, we celebrate and embrace an incredibly diverse student body that represents the vibrant communities of our great town.  We are proud to be a district that provides our students with the beauty of our world and believes that “together, we are better.”
