I know this is a long-shot, but I thought I'd post on this board as well. I already posted a similar question on the local boards....
So here goes-- My husband and I are very seriously considering moving to North Stamford, CT later this year. Our oldest will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall, so we are obviously taking schools into consideration with our move. My MIL is very nervous about the Stamford public school system because the schools in the area have relatively low scores on GreatSchools which is based on test results. In an effort to appease her, I'm trying to get some direct feedback from parents who send their kids to Stamford public schools, most specifically Northeast Elementary and Turn of River Middle School.
Coming from the city, my feeling is that these test scores are lower because the school is dealing with a more diverse population of students (something we want) that may not be native English speakers and may have other challenges (financial, etc.) at home.
Does anybody have any direct experience or friends with kids at these schools? The few parent reviews of the schools I can find online are all very positive. Just wanted to check in with you all.
Thanks in advance.
