Frederick U. Conard High School is a public high school in West Hartford, in the U.S. state of Connecticut. It opened in 1957, and was named after Frederick Underwood Conard, president of Niles-Bement-Pond Company and chairman of the local Board of Education when plans for the school were approved.[3] Conard is one of two West Hartford public high schools, the other being Hall High School.

History

Conard's first classes were held on September 4, 1957.[4] While Conard was originally designed to accommodate 1,100 students, it now accommodates 2,870.[5]

On February 23, 2015, fans of Conard and Hall High School badminton were involved in a physical conflict at their annual end-of-season rivalry game.[6]

At the end of the 2021-2022 School Season, the students, staff, and Board of Education of West Hartford Public Schools were prompted to vote for mascots which Conard and Hall High Schools would change theirs to, respectively. For Conard, "Red Wolves" won with a substantially higher vote.[7]
