Founded in 1930, Mooreland Hill School is an intentionally small, yet diverse and vibrant learning community that serves elementary and middle school students from Central Connecticut. We provide a balanced education, nurturing each student’s intellectual ability and curiosity, in addition to their personal and social growth and civic conscience. 


A rigorous curriculum emphasizes the importance of individualized learning, giving each student the skills required to fulfill his or her potential.  We believe that educational opportunities extend well beyond the classroom to athletic competitions, artistic pursuits, and school leadership experiences. It is our responsibility to utilize all these venues to encourage our students to discover their own interests, talents, and passions and to become increasingly responsible for and engaged in their own learning. The academic program is traditional and well rounded. Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies are balanced by a complementary curriculum in Music, Art, Drama, and Physical Education. French and Spanish are introduced in the earliest grades. Technology is integrated into the daily learning of all students. In all that we do – in the classrooms, on the playing fields, on the concert stage, and in the community – we strive to nurture the excellence in each child.

Mooreland Hill faculty members are selected as much for their genuine interest in young people and willingness to get involved in every phase of school life as for their scholarship and teaching ability. 

Mooreland Hill School is a coeducational independent school. The school does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, or any protected class in the administration of its admissions, access to financial aid, educational programs, hiring practices, or school activities.
