Top Public Schools Serving Glastonbury
I will never understand the positive reviews, though good for those who had a different experience than I did. I spent 10 miserable years in Glastonbury. I couldn't get out fast enough. Snobby new money, and no amount of quaintness could overcome the attitudes. You couldn't pay me enough to live there again. I know a few people who were in school there at different times than I was, and the sentiment was pretty universal. Awful. Teachers catered to the rich or popular kids, left the others behind, and the admin was worse. I only know of one or two teachers who come to mind who actually tried to make a difference.
Glastonbury is a quaint, little New England town. It has awesome schools and sports available as well as farms that provide fresh fruits and vegetable throughout the year. There really is not a lot of night life to speak of. For this reason it is very geared toward young families with school age children that can pay the higher taxes and have them put toward education.
Great place to live and even better schools! Glastonbury is super warm and friendly. There is little commute time and some of the best fine dining restaurants. Best aspect is the school system though.
