East Lyme School District Reviews

Having attended East Lyme schools throughout my entire life, I can confidently say that I graduated with an exceptional well-rounded foundation for college and beyond. From elementary school throughout my senior year, we were offered a liberal and diverse curriculum including core subjects, music, athletics, and woodworking, while always encouraged to strive for academic excellence. The teachers and staff are extremely supportive and more than accommodating with individual needs. East Lyme's school system offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities and sports that enforce positive values and create lifelong friendships. I am lucky to have attended and would recommend to any family looking for a similar experience for their children!
