Booth Hill Bobcat spirit at Jump Rope for Heart!

Nestled in the historic Nichols section of Trumbull, Booth Hill is a diverse school of 515 students, with a talented and dedicated staff, and a highly supportive parent community. Booth Hill has earned a strong reputation as an innovative school and one that's received multiple school of distinction awards from the state of Connecticut. Every year our grade-level teams and departments examine common core standards and units of study to determine how we can best meet the needs of our students.

Through our highly collaborative process, staff members meet on an on-going basis to analyze student data, revise units and determine small group instruction. When making these decisions, we ask ourselves one essential question: Is this best for our students? This question drives our staff to provide the most thoughtful support and instruction for our Booth Hill Bobcats. While our students benefit from this approach, our staff also contributes their knowledge and best practices at district staff development sessions and invite staff members from other schools for walk-throughs to observe a particular subject on a specific instructional technique.

Our school takes great pride in creating and enhancing our student-led culture. We strongly believe that students should be leading their school. If you were to walk through Booth Hill you would witness students determining our spirit days, being lead speakers at our assemblies, concerts, and school celebrations. Our Bobcats continue to generate ideas to support and celebrate our positive behavior intervention system: Respect, Ownership, Attitude, Responsibility, and Safety.
