Phenomenal. I couldn't pick a better school for my children if I had to. They push the students to be the absolute best they can be, they do not tolerate laziness, & hold student accountable for they actions. That being said, they also keep it fun & family like. The work ethics they instill, will last a lifetime. The wonderful, long time principal retired last year & we wondered if the new one could even compare, but in true New Haven fashion.. they picked a great replacement. The kids have respect for the staff & want to work hard for them. The changes, I've seen in my kids since moving here is nothing short of amazing.
Smaller school means teachers really get to know their students. Though there aren't a lot of 'extra' class offerings -- all of the basics are covered. Students are well prepared to make the transition to college.
Moved to New Haven 2 years ago and was amazed to find the number per capita of students on the national honor roll. The students are very well rounded in all activities. Parent participation is phenomenal with many attending multiple events centered around the students weekly. The school is really the nuclei of the community.
