Help the community by answering this question:


I just did a tour of middle schools in lower fairfield county with a client and his 11 year old son. He is deciding where to live based on the schools. We looked at Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan and Westport. Surprising what you see when you get there. Test scores are important and websites can give you that information, but NOTHING compares to visiting the school.

I do know that Bedford Middle School in Westport won the Blue Ribbon award.

The only valid comparison of various district performance criteria are the CT Mastery Test (CMT) and the CT Academic Performance Test (CAPT) scores. These should be available at one of the following websites:

CT State Dept of Education website:
CT State Dept of Education NCLB website:

Beyond this, you may need to visit each school and obtain any other information they may have on building performance and programs. In addition, you may want to look at high school performance: SAT scores, standardized test scores, raduation rates, college acceptance rates, etc.

Hope this helps.
