Mooreland Hill School

166 Lincoln St, Kensington, CT 06037

Founded as the Shuttle Meadow School by New Britain industrialist families, the school became Mooreland Hill in 1937, in gratitude for property donated by E. Allen Moore. Today, the school enrolls students from more than two dozen central Connecticut towns. The school structure features multi-age groupings in kindergarten and grade 1, grades 2 and 3, and grades 4 and 5, then individual grades thereafter. The curriculum is traditional, with emphasis placed on English, literature, history, math and science. Complementing the basics are offerings in French, Spanish, Latin, humanities, art, music, and human growth and development. Mooreland Hill maintains small average class sizes, and the curriculum includes advanced-level courses in all major disciplines. In addition to interscholastic athletics, the school offers such noncompetitive options as photography, hiking and life sports. Each pupil completes daily chores. Children in all grades participate in off-campus learning experiences, such as history and science trips to nearby cities; visits to local art museums, concerts and plays; and out-of-state class trips.
