Hartford School District Reviews
I have been in the Hartford school district area to visit Goodwin Colleges in East Hartford only a couple of times . The fist time I visited Goodwin College I was impressed by the school architectural design. It's entrance looks modern, with glass front doors, and decorated with plated scientific sculptures outside. The conference room was very well decorated with the world flags, a very attractive and wide representation of the diverse students that may attend Goodwin University. The only aspect I would change is to make the school more accessible by adding public transportation from Willimantic CT to Goodwin University and vice-versa, in this way Goodwin University would be more accessible to Willimantic residents.
Hartford Public Schools have wide variety of schools that many inner city students go to as well as students that aren't from the city of Hartford. Hartford School district has public schools, magnet, and technical schools that best fits every students desire for what they want to study and puts them on the career path for their future. Although the school district does give out free lunch, I would say that is one of the things they do need to improve. Also many schools and students have been affected by the budget that has recently happened so some schools are facing the issue of whether they have enough paper to print out their work for students. Overall, this school district is helping the inner city students who most believe who make it to college or even finish high school make it out to college.
The internship opportunities are great. However, the expectations of the students are low, there needs to be a change, the administrators need to push the students to do their best and not the bare minimum.
