The Alfred W. Hanmer School has a stimulating environment and its setting in historic "Olde Wethersfield" offers many unique educational opportunities for children. Each year the pages of history come alive with architectural walking tours along streets lined with 17th and 18th century homes, and with on-site programs at the ancient burying grounds, Wethersfield Cove, and the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum.

Built in 1967, Hanmer School was named in honor of Alfred Welles Hanmer (1867-1953), a community leader who served as the Director of the Comstock-Ferre Company, and as Wethersfield's First Selectman for forty-six years.

The staff is committed to providing students with a quality education.  Each year the administrative and teaching staff ensure that all students are prepared for lifelong success by fostering relationships with students and the community.  We help students build upon strengths and identify areas of need. We teach students to reflect upon their own learning and make goals for the future.   

The Hanmer School community of students, parents and staff are proud of their school and continue to dedicate themselves to total school and community improvement.  We stay focused on making a difference for ourselves, our school and our world.

Wethersfield Public Schools Welcomes Guest Speaker Rais Bhuiyan - 1/22/18 - 6pm - SDMS
Posted 01/12/2018 02:33PM

Wethersfield Parents, Guardians and Community Members - Please join us in a conversation with Mr. Rais Bhuiyan. His tale of empathy and kindness in the face of hate and personal attack will inspire.  Rais will also be joining SDMS students and families for the day on January 22. 2018 to share his story and life's journey.

Rais Bhuiyan, an American Muslim from Bangladesh, is an extraordinary individual with a powerful story. After serving as an air force pilot in Bangladesh, Rais moved to the United States in 1999 to study computer technology. Ten days after 9/11, Rais was the victim of a horrific hate crime, attacked by, Mark Stroman, self-described “the Arab slayer,” Rais barely survived. Sadly, two other victims were killed. Stroman was sentenced to death; ten years later, Rais led an international campaign, fighting to save Stroman’s life. Rais’ near death experience sparked a profound journey of soul searching and began his path as a human rights activist for peace, forgiveness, empathy and understanding. Though Rais’ effort to save Stroman from execution in 2011 was unsuccessful, his transformative ability to turn hate into compassion and forgive the unforgivable has been transformative. Through his non-profit, World Without Hate, Rais has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people as he shares his inspirational story and message at schools, universities, organizations and conferences all over the world.
