School Overview

University of Hartford Magnet School encourages students to explore their learning through Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. Students become active participants in their learning, first becoming aware of how they learn best and using this awareness to set goals and achieve them. Lessons are carefully crafted to maximize each student’s potential and celebrate differences in how people learn. In partnership with the University of Hartford, students have access to enhanced college-sponsored learning opportunities in reading, science, the arts, and music, as well as a mentorship program with student-athletes.

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.
