This is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers and staff. Community is an excellent word to be included in the name of the school because that is what it is: a community of educators and learners working together to provide a valuable experience in learning and life.

I love Pomfret Community School (PCS) because it taught me to respect people and our planet. Because of the foundation that PCS gave me, I am a good student who is active in environmental and social justice causes. It is truly a unique school.

Overall this school has been great for my children. The school goes out of their way to expose the students to multi faceted programs. We have loved our teachers. We love the staff. The staff has an amazing talent for knowing each child and parent! My only complaints are 1) That the school is not racially diverse. Thank goodness they teach multi culture lessons because there is no real life experience. 2) The community is affluent and unfortunately if your bank account doesn't match up you are treated like low class by many parents. Its a shame really.

We just moved to Pomfret from another state and I cannot tell you how much we LOVE this school. I have 3 children in PCS and I do not have one complaint with any of my children's classes. We moved out of state due to the horrific school system and we are THRILLED we chose Pomfret.

I have to agree with the positive kudos from others. We have had excellent experiences with PCS, both with the teachers and the faculty. You couldn't get this type of attention in larger schools. I can't see how anyone can feel that the school does not communicate information. We have a wonderful usable website, the school sends out a weekly update for general and grade specific information. We also have every teachers email! The extra mile these teachers and faculty go is very rare and shows. We have two girls, age 10 and 6, who have had exceptional experiences here. Just attend one concert or evening performance and you will see songs written by the music teacher and children who have been exposed to cultural events that most schools cut years ago. I believe that PCS excels due to a combination of creative teachers, committed faculty and an untiring PTO. A+!

PCS is a fantastic, vibrant and dynamic place to learn! Because of small class sizes the teachers are able to help each child learn at his or her level, and because of the support and encouragement of the administration, teachers are able to do really creative and unique things to make learning fun AND memorable! Our new principal (who, yes, does commute from out of town) is present at EVERY SINGLE CHILD'S EVENT, and all PTO, Board of Ed and other meetings concerning the school. Her dedication is amazing, and her idea of what the school CAN be is even more amazing! We are so lucky to have such talented, committed and energetic staff and administration... and the true test of a great school... My children are thriving!

This school is awful, they have no communication with parents, they dislike single parents and abuse their authority for their own self interests. They do not help children in need due to limited funding allocated for this area. The administration is appalling and their principle commutes from Old Saybrook. They have a Greenwich CT attitude. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, you'd do better to homeschool.

I have a 12,9 and 7 year old at PCS. We enrolled in 9/05 and so far have been delighted with the schools professionalism and quality teaching. With excellent private schools close by we were undecided but felt we should give pcs a try. The programs are well organized. Truly a nice school with dedicated staff members.

Excellent school system with high level academic programs found challenging and progressive. Truly exceptional faculty clearly dedicated as is evidenced by their regionally compared inferior monetary and benefit compensation package. Larger than anticipated community growth has caused an unfortunate lack of space resulting in either cut or reduced programs. Poor science program due to lack of equipment, not lack of competent staff results in students being marginally unprepared for secondary school programs in chemistry and biology. The town needs a second school badly and without one, the quality of education will suffer considerably. Fantastic and multi-talented administration.
