Linden Street School4

Though I must say that i was dismayed to be moving to Plainville (and CT in general), I've found that Linden Street School is -for Connecticut - as good as it gets. While CT is truly lacking competitive school districts, Linden is a charming, caring elementary school that truly does foster a love of education in its "scholars" (as the students are called by their beloved principal, Ms. Eshoo.) It's an everyone-knows-everyone tiny town, and the school is representative of that in the best ways. Expect to be heavily involved as a parent, as there is a constant slew of family events and projects. The only complaint I have is of their pick-up and drop-off procedures- it's an ill-conceived logistical nightmare with hundreds of parents fighting to retrieve their children from a tiny parking area.
We moved to plainville just in time for my daughter to start 1st grade. We found that all of our previous concerns that were pushed aside in another town were true concerns. The staff at linden noticed she was struggling abd talked to us about it and offered many programs to help her. I am forever grateful that I moved here to such a great school when the last one just put all concerns aside. My daughter is now doing really well in school and I owe it all to linden.
