This is an excellent school. "A big school with a big heart" as the principal often says. The faculty is very supportive and caring. They have an active PTO with all kinds of programs and activities for the students. I asked my second grade son, "What amkes your school special?" He responed, "The teachers!". I think that says it all.
I just moved to Southington this past summer and have kids at Derynoski now. I'm VERY pleased with it. The teachers actually care. The administration is very nice. It's just an overall sense of well-being. I feel good about sending my kids there each day.
