Our son transferred to WH from another school and we couldn't be happier. Amazing faculty, great community.

This school is really great and is the best in the area by far. Most of the children are part of the Yale community and the parents are obviously very interested in the education of their children. The teachers are great and the ESL program is superb. This is important to incorporate all the brainy children who arrive with their parents at Yale for postdoc's etc. The infrastructure is brand new as both K-2 and 3-8 schools have just been built. Note: it is really hard to get into after kindergarten so show up on the first day of registration. I was there at 4am and there was already a line for Worthington Hooker!

Worthington Hooker is a great school. I have been here since kindergarten and now I'm in the eighgth grade and I love it. The classes are small so the students know all the teachers and they know all the students too. Everyone is so friendly here and we have great classes. Seriously, these teachers know what they are doing. The school is also involved in alot of programs with Yale and Uconn. Parents are very involved in this school. In fact, most of the parents see their child's teacher every week to see how they are doing. The school doesn't have any sports teams but we have math and science clubs, a literary magazine, we put on a musical every year and we have a group called global ed. that teaches kids about other countries. And the classes here are the best. This is the best school in the state.

This is a small public school with international children whose parents are often attending or teaching at Yale. The arts and ethnic diversity is emphasized. Teachers are especially generous and thoughtful to the students. The unfortunately are cursed to deal with Bush's 'no child left behind' (meaning lots of testing) But they do their best to make room for drama & art. Their special education support has been very good for our daughter. My only complaint is the homework, but I don't believe homework in elementary school is that useful.
