Stanwich doesn't just "talk the talk" -- they walk the walk. Children are expected to do community service and to live by the Stanwich 7. Only school in the area like it.

Since Stanwich abides by the Stanwich 7 (Judeo-Christian principles), the children are expected to act accordingly. Highly recommended if your child is a high achiever. Great teachers, very committed to the kids.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

Teachers are extremely effective at Stanwich because they are very invested in each child. The class sizes are small, therefore, the teachers get to know your child very well.

Amount of homework: Too much

Alot of homework, but then again, alot more is expected of our children in this day and age. Homework reviews what is taught in the classroom so it is on target.

Stanwich prepares their children for the future. Academics are rigorous, but that's why the children come out with a solid education.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

Anything less than respect toward one another is not tolerated. Teachers are very involved if a student gets out of line.

Academic rigor is a hallmark of the school, so persistence and determination are necessary traits to do well at the school. Good study skills and a respect for completed and well- prepared homework is shared by this whole community

Also part of the Stanwich 7 values. For whatever reason, this school also attracts kids with these qualities naturally, but the reinforcement of them are definitely a part of the Stanwich values program.

This is a part of the school's mission, and is emphasized constantly. Stanwich 7 is constantly referenced throughout the school and during daily assemblies

Shocking to see the previous review, not because of its inaccuracies (which it has), but because a one-star sabotage rating of a school at which this parent most certainly saw a child grow in many ways, and at which the parent inevitably still has friends (and their kid(s) still have friends), is deplorable. The school is not perfect (no school is) but we love and are deeply grateful for everything Stanwich has done for our kids and remain fully committed to this special place.
