Coleytown Elementary School
6 Best Public Elementary Schools in Connecticut
- Westport School District, CT
Niche User: The teachers are passionate about their jobs shaping young minds. The work is more than other schools but the kids are capable and rise to the challenge. If my child balks about doing her homework, I'll tell her " no problem, you can explain to the teacher you didn't feel like doing homework ".
She would NEVER want to disappoint her teacher because she respects him so much, so it gets done. No child is given more than they can handle.

Fairfield College Preparatory School
- Private School
- Fairfield, CT
Senior: My experience at Fairfield College Preparatory School has prepared me not only for college but for life. The academics are rigorous with very supportive teachers and staff. Being "Men for Others" is an everyday thread at Prep. Weekly Christian service that you choose is part of your routine. The opportunity to explore your spirituality at Prep is also engaging with Theology and Social Ethics classes, campus ministry and retreats that are offered. The sports culture at Prep is a preview of your college years. There is no lack of school spirit in this all boys Jesuit high school. Playing soccer, rugby and weightlifting at our school gym helped strengthen my core and mental focus on the field. Prep's campus is suburban and beautiful all four seasons.

Junior: Great school. The teachers challenge students and push them to improve, and the school does a lot to give students the confidence to speak out and be heard. The college counseling office is fantastic. They do a great job of easing students through the college process and finding a college that is a good fit for the student. On top of that, as Watkinson is a small school, the school community is very tight-knit. As a junior, I know every junior, senior, and sophomore by name, which is common at Watkinson.
