New Canaan earns a spot on the map for its modern architecture and gorgeous public parks. Situated close to Stamford and about an hour away from New York City, New Canaan residents are both educated and affluent. More than half the population of New Canaan has a college degree.
In 2010, West School (PK-4) had the highest reading, writing, and math scores in the state, according to Connecticut Mastery Test, while East School (also an elementary) ranked number 13. From sports to theater, New Canaan High School students are also well-rounded. Students have posted superior performances in lacrosse, musical production, and academics. No wonder New Canaan High landed a Silver Medal in U.S. News & World Report's 2010 list of America's Best High Schools. Their brainiac achievements may be due in part to an outstanding school library, lauded by the American Association of School Librarians and the Connecticut Association of School Librarians for its excellent media program in 2010.
