Torringford is an amazing school! I am a 7th the grader at Torrington Middle School and I attended this great school for grades K-5. Throughout my time there, I didn't have one teacher that I wasn't happy with. This wonderful community helped me so much, making me not only the student, but the person that I am today. At Torrington Middle School, I am in all honors classes and have a grade point average in the high nineties. But I would have never gotten there if it weren't for my spectacular experiences at Torringford. I love this school. It's not too big or too small. Just a perfect place for every child to be inspired. Thanks Torringford!!!!!

Torringford School is an amazing community unto its own. The teachers,administrators and support staff are wonderful people who dedicate their heart and soul to our fortunate children! They go above and beyond to make sure that our kids excel and have the building blocks needed to be successful in their elementary years, which is so very important!

Torringford is a school willing to try new educational programs. My child is an average across the board student. Upon saying that I'm unaware of the speciality programs. The students are mainstreamed and are considered equal. The extra programs outside the class room are involved far more then just an extra class. Music actually introduces the use of an instrument to classical in 3rd grd. The art works with technique as well. The physical Education program has homework. The parents are highly involved through PTO and volunteering. Many family involved programs occur at the school. I don't have any school to compare to being the first one and only one my children go to. I've had no reason to doubt the education being received. As with all schools some teachers techniques work better with some students and not all. The schools works to place each child with a teacher.
