Royle Elementary School
44 Best Public Elementary Schools in Connecticut
- Darien School District, CT
- PK, K-5
Parent: As a new parent to this school, the staff, PTO, and families were all so welcoming and warm. Having gone to a private school myself, I can say that Royle feels like a private school with its small size and nurturing environment. The new principal (2016-17) is great and I have high hopes for his tenure. The English and writing curriculum are strong. Music, language, and arts are all built into the curriculum, and each child has access to Chrome Books and are taught how to use them properly. Overall we are happy with our choice to be in the Royle School.
