Who We Are


A Message From Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez,
Superintendent, Hartford Public Schools

We believe in each one of our beautiful and capable students. We are committed to ensuring an educational community that fosters inspiration, high expectations, curiosity and provides opportunity for all our students.

As a former Hartford Public Schools student, I know what the school district is capable of and I know what is at stake. That’s why from neighborhood schools, to magnet and open choice schools, we provide more educational opportunities than any other district in the region— we believe education involves more than a one-size-fits-all approach. 

I love Hartford Public Schools. My hopes and dreams are wrapped around the success of each one of our students. Our priority as a school community is to provide quality instruction for development of the skills, knowledge and voice that students need to graduate ready for college and life, ensuring that every child has a safe, nurturing school environment. We value the whole student.
