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.

Eagle Hill School
- Private School
- Greenwich, CT
Parent: Our son, who has ADHD and learning differences, has been a student at Eagle Hill for 6 years. An advantage of the Eagle Hill program vis-a-vis those of other area schools for children with LDs is that it supports the development of pragmatic language skills, in addition to providing an individualized academic program. Also, the small class sizes are critical for our son's learning style. It is also very helpful that the school has an in-house team of specialists - speech pathologists, psychologists, a social worker - who work with students and alongside faculty to support the children's learning. When our son was in public school, we had to outsource for speech and motor training. I am amazed at our son's journey from a kid who could barely spell a word in first grade, let alone play on a soccer team, to the confident kid he is today. He may learn differently, but at Eagle Hill, he has acquired strategies to be successful in that way that he learns.
