Six to Six Magnet school is not only a wonderful learning community, but also a great place to work. The faculty and staff is what really makes this school such a great place for children to grow into responsible, well educated members of society. The administrators are very helpful and supportive. They encourage parents to be involved and for staff members to continue to achieve their own personal educational goals.

We could not ask for a better school than this for our to daughter attend. The Six to Six staff, administrators, teachers and the parent support is amazing! Our daughter is positively challenged, nurtured and taught creative thinking everyday- and she is in preschool! We are very fortunate & thankful that she can attend this school!

I am so impressed with how wonderful this school has been for my son in PreK. The enviornment is so warm and family oriented. The family center is always there to lend a hand at working to make a stronger connection between the school/home goals for your child. I have felt enabled by this school to help my child with each task. Also what he is learning in class has him leaps and bounds above my other child that went to a standard preschool. The technology and language skills programs are top notch!!!

I have two children who graduated from 6 to 6 and one that is still there. I do feel that my son and daughter received great educations at 6 to 6. I know that my child who is currently there is getting an excellent education. The teachers are dedicated professionals that are willing to go the extra mile for kids. My son is very happy.

I have two boys who attend Six to Six and we have been very happy with the personalized attention each of my boys receive. Although we live in Trumbull, the commute to school is well worth the time. Class sizes are very small, there is always an aide or two in the lower level classes and after winning the multi-million dollar math and science grant, there are many 'extras' that the kids benefit from. Six to Six has a family feel and welcomes everyone to volunteer and get involved in the community. Our family never knew about Six to Six but weren't certainly glad we stumbled upon this high quality school.

the middle school has many new teachers and their test scores are great. I saw them on the COnncan website as one of the most improved schools in ct. The new principal is young and enthusuastic, my son graduated their last year and he is doing great in high school, and he misses tmms alot. they also are using lots of technology now.

6 to 6 is a good school in the lower level grades. But it's middle school needs great improvement. Ever since my child graduated from the school. I see how unprepared my child was for high school academically. I would not recommend any child attend their middle school until they improve it.

This school is absolutely wonderful. It has many different hands on activities for the children. I chose this school over Fairfield Public because of the many different academics it offers as well as the wonderful staff and cozy environment. The entire staff cares about the children and that is the difference

My 2 children have gone through Six to Six. This school is like a family to us. My friends felt lucky when thier children were accepted at Six to us. All of us have had wonderful experiences. We love the relationship of the children and the staff. We love the relationship of the children and their mates. The academic curriculum is very strong in the early grades but falters as they advance in grades. What it lacks in academic challanges, it makes up in the safe, happy, family focused atmosphere which is lacking in many other schools. My kids have all graduated and moved out of Bridgeport but their friends still remember thier Birthdays because the school integrated every kids birthday, artwork in the school calender. I love Six to Six!!. Martina, Tampa, FL

Six to six is a great school, specially for social studies, language and arts, however its math program is weak (as of may 2006, not sure how it is now). The metodology used to teach math doesn't prepare the student for math in traditional math teaching. My son left 6 to 6 and when we moved to Georgia he had a hard time to keep with the level of math taught at his new school.

Our son has been attending the Six to Six Interdistrict Magnet School since he was in Pre-school, he is now entering Fourth Grade. His natural curiosity and interest in history is fostered there. Even when he was in Kindergarten the school librarian let him take out history books from the Middle School section. Our son feels at home there, free to be himself. Six to Six nurtures the students as well as the parents, everyone is known by name, within this small creative school and parents are welcomed into the school at any time. Even though our hometown of Fairfield has many good schools, Six to Six is still the right fit for our child and he has good friends there. We love the five district diversity of families within the school. We couldn't ask for a better mix of educational excellence and a supportive family atmosphere for our son's school.

My daughter is in second grade and my son in preschool 4's. We chose to send our children to this school because of the diversity and small class size. My children are thriving in a supportive environment where children of different backgrounds and socio-economic levels all become a community of learners. Administration and staff all know my children by name and greet us every time we come in. The principal is responsive and approachable. We are happy we made the choice to attend this school and have NO REGRETS. I am in the building at least 3x/week and have never discovered an issue.

My children have thrived at six to six, top notch education. It is truly a family environment you feel at home in this environment. Katherine archer

This school has no sense of leadership, it is unsanitary, and some teachers are just there for a paycheck...they don't really care about the kids and their well-being. I thought magnet schools were supposed to be good, but this school does not deserve to have magnet as part of the title. If you don't believe me, then check out the reading, writing, and math scores for yourself.

I am a proud parent of two kids that attend Six to Six. My husband and I can say enough about this school. The staff is great the parents are great and everyone that walks thru the doors of this schools know it. The quality of academic programs is fantastic. The involment of everyone from teachers to parents is on school hours and off school hours shows that we all care. The PTA staff always willing to go on and above shows in so many levels. The one on one treatment that is given to each child to make sure that they achived where they need to be in the grade level, there needs are always meet. I Michelle Rivera, recomend this school to any parent that would like there children to learn, be respected as an individual and achived greatness. This school is for your child and for you.

I am very pleased with Six to Six. My daughter is going into the first grade and I have to say that I would not even think about putting her in another school.The teachers are very suportive, along with the principal and office staff!What really impressed me the most was that the first day of school they made it a point to get to know the children and their families.By the second week of school they all knew my name and my child's name as well.They not only impressed me that way, but the principal carried my daughter off of the school bus in the morning for a whole week because she fell asleep on the way to school.She treated my daughter like her own and even commented on her cool socks the next time I saw her in the halls. How personal can you get?Much Love!

This school turned out to be a big disappointment. Pre k and first grade are so so, but once the child becomes independent, discipline is non existent. Children learn obscene words very early on second grade. Teachers do not provide any support and blame the parents for every single problem in the classroom.

My son graduated last year from Six to Six. This school and the caring staff , Principal and Asst. Principal treated my son with respect and he gained his self-esteem back.... My daughter entered in 3rd grade and her reading and writing skills were low, because Six to Six focused on reading and writing her skills went way up and she even won a writing essay award.... Six to Six has been a wonderful learning, caring and growing school.... All students are treated with respect. I am very pleased with the education my son received and my daughter is receiving right now....

My child goes to this school and despite the comment another parent made in April 2003, this is one of the better if not one of the best grade schools in Bridgeport. The teachers have always been courteous to my child and to myself. And now that they are changing their math curriculum, I will be very pleased with the education my son is receiving.
