Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15-October 15

Hispanics/Latinos represent the largest student group in Meriden Public Schools. Currently, 58% of the student body is of Hispanic/Latino descent. Our Latino students represent a wide range of countries: South America, Central America, Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Cuba. The largest percentage of students are of Puerto Rican descent. At MPS, we believe it is important to recognize our Hispanic/Latino students, families, and employees!


The national theme for Hispanic Heritage Month 2021 is Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope. In this edition, you will meet MPS' Hispanic administrators. In an upcoming edition we will meet some students and teachers.
