Hindley Elementary School

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  You will find useful information and resources that will help you discover more about our learning community.

Hindley School is located in the town of Darien and is one of five elementary schools in the district.  We are a Blue Ribbon Award winning school that serves approximately 500 K-5 students.

At Hindley School we strive to foster a lifelong love of learning in our students and provide a solid start to their educational careers.  Our school is filled with a dynamic staff dedicated to meeting their students’ social, emotional, academic, and physical needs.  We recognize that each child is unique and we are committed to the success of each learner.  Hindley teachers continue to grow, learn, and collaborate.  They partake in ongoing professional development at both the building and district level.  The result is a staff that is current in best practices, and a school where curriculum and instruction continually improve.

The Hindley community is fortunate to have parents that are fully invested in their children's’ education.  Our PTO works tirelessly to organize programs and plan events that enrich the lives of our students.  We appreciate the efforts of all the parents who donate their time to support our students and enhance our school.

I am thrilled to be part of this neighborhood school with such talented staff members, such involved parents, and such amazing kids.  Together we make Hindley School a special place!
