I am a very involved parent with three children in the Fairfield school system. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss on a one-on-one basis. I appreciate how important this is to your decision process.
I know how important this question is to you having moved several times myself with school age children. I wish I could tell you which school is best, but that is subjective to each child's interests and needs. The best thing you can do is go to fairfieldschools.org which is the superintendent of school site and research all elementary schools. I would look at class size, test scores (if you can't find what you are looking for call the office at 203-255-8340 and ask them to send you each schools scores.) I would go to each elementary site (you can find on my website under Community Information - School Information) and bring up each school to see what's been going on. I would also call the PTA president for each elementary and talk to them about the student population, testing, parent involement, challenges facing the students or issues in the school.
Please feel free to call me with any questions. I would be pleased to help. Finding the right school for your children should be the first step in finding a new home for your family.

It depends on what it most important to you...location, student to teacher ratio?
All Fairfield schools are excellent, but we can further explore your needs.
Feel free to call me at 203-556-1608 to discuss it further. I'm always here to help.
There is also a state link that can give you the CMT (Connecticut Mastery Scores) for each school, if that would help you.

In over 20 yrs in real estate I have never had anyone from any school want to go to a different school district because they felt the school was inferior. Every teacher is different and some schools offer special programs. Administrators in the school may make the school climate better or worse for teachers or students, but those things change and rather frequently. Best thing to do is make an appointment, visit the school and meet the principal and some staff and compare.
