School Overview

The Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker offers a comprehensive program that includes inquiry-based, hands-on investigations of our local and global environments. Using the new, state-of-the-art building and campus, students monitor, test and collect data throughout the year, noting human impacts on our environment. The building and campus provide many different ecosystems and labs that allow students to work side by side with a resident marine scientist and entomologist, exploring local living organisms from plants to butterflies.

The Environmental Science theme provides a rich elementary and middle school experience designed to prepare students to enter high quality high school science and technology programs. The students’ experiences allow them to develop the critical thinking skills required for success in the emerging fields of medicine, engineering and environmental sciences.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
