Different By Design

From the time Raymond Hill School first opened in 2004 our goal has been to integrate innovative programming and a state-of-the-art facility in a powerful way. Designed to be a bright, welcoming, and appealing physical environment, the school invites students to explore their educational experiences with new eyes. Filled with natural light, soaring ceilings, and rounded walls, the school offers stunning views of the Connecticut countryside and provides a tranquil setting for children and adults alike. Located on Klingberg Family Centers’ beautiful 40-acre hilltop in a residential section of New Britain, the campus also offers a gymnasium and recreation center, an outdoor pool, playing fields, and a picnic area.

Raymond Hill School provides:

  • A state approved academic curriculum (Grades K-12)
  • Vocational Programming
  • Core curriculum of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies
  • Music, Art, and Physical Education classes
  • Performing Arts programs
  • Classroom size of eight students, 4:1 student to classroom staff ratio
  • State certified Special Education teachers
  • Faculty trained in the tenets of Risking Connection®, the Restorative Approach™, and Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support

Education with a Plan

The education program is designed to identify each student’s individual strengths and areas for growth and to provide instructional experiences that will maximize student potential and support student successes. Integral to this design are informal and formal assessment procedures, the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) and a behavior management program based on development of social skills, autonomy, self-esteem, and personal coping strategies.


The Raymond Hill School maintains memberships in the Connecticut Association of Private Special Education Facilities (CAPSEF), Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), and the National Association of Private Special Education Centers (NAPSEC) in order to remain current on relevant issues.
