Website ranks Trumbull's elementary schools among top in state
In the 2015 Niche Rankings of Best Public Elementary Schools in Connecticut, all six of Trumbull’s elementary schools rank in the top 150 statewide.
According to niche.com, “Best Public Elementary Schools” ranks 40,403 elementary schools nationwide, based on key student statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents. A high ranking indicates that the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students and faculty, and the students are very happy with their experiences.
“The fact that all six of our elementary schools rank in the top 150 in the State of Connecticut is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our teachers, administrators, school superintendent and Board of Education,” said First Selectman Tim Herbst in a press release. “In less than two years they have revamped protocols to make buildings safer, cleaner and more energy efficient. They have done this while eliminating portable classrooms, maintaining low class size, improving classroom technology and developing a plan to eliminate pay–to-participate fees. This builds upon our success in implementing full-day kindergarten in 2012. There is no question that our school system is better off now than it was a few short years ago.”
Dr. Gary Cialfi, Superintendent of Schools for Trumbull, offered kudos to his team.
“I am honored to learn of this recognition, and I personally thank our very talented students, and dedicated parents, teachers, administrators and coaches, who collaborate to make our schools the envy of the nation,” Cialfi said.
“This accomplishment underscores Trumbull as community of choice here in Connecticut,” lauded Jamie Brätt, Director of Economic & Community Development. “Time and again, the data supports what Trumbull families already know and tell their friends about; we provide an outstanding public education for our students and a beautifully connected quality of life. Every month I meet business owners seeking to relocate to Trumbull from further down county because they love living here and can no longer tolerate the daily torment of southbound commuting. And we are happy to welcome them as tenants, investors and Trumbull families that benefit from our outstanding school system.”
