Cos Cob Reviews

1 review
It's a quiet town with what seems to be a lot of wealthy residents in the area. One thing that is clear though is that the public high school - Greenwich High school - is a very well developed structure in this area. The school is bigger than most and has a diverse set of classes and faculty that really does help with the student's growth. There's so many classes that a student can choose from that it could honestly be said that the school caters to everyone's needs.
