North Mianus School
25 Best Public Elementary Schools in Connecticut
- Greenwich School District, CT
Parent: Pleased with experience . Teachers are great and my children love learning. Big emphasis placed on reading and social development. Love it that children get so much exercise/pe time -- especially good for young boys. Found administration and teachers to be very responsive and always available; communication is also excellent. One huge perk is the "afters" program that they have every day -- for a small fee, your kids can explore their personal and academic passions (or be exposed to them for the first time). One criticism is that I wish they began foreign language exposure earlier and did more for those children who are already bilingual.
We toured all the schools in Greenwich and chose to live in this district. Found Riverside and OG to be too elitist for my taste.

Parent: Green Meadow is an incredibly special place. We sent our daughter there for ten years and our son is currently a sixth grader. Waldorf education is very different from mainstream education, so if you are considering this school, that’s the first thing you need to figure out. Waldorf education focuses on the body, mind and spirit - with the arts considered as important as other subjects. They teach math and science in really exciting, creative ways. The kids get a LOT of outdoor time, which is wonderful. Green Meadow is a particularly strong and well-established school. It has an amazingly gifted and dedicated teaching staff, and a thoughtful and responsive administration. Sure, there are some small dramas that happen, but in general, this is an excellent school with a dedicated and supportive community.
