Hello CT Nesties!
My husband and I were married in CT 8 years ago this Fall, and it looks like we'll be moving to CT from Brooklyn early this Summer. We're focusing in on North Stamford because it makes commuting into the city a little easier and we like the area.
My mother-in-law is fairly concerned about the local public schools' ratings on GreatSchools. I am really much less concerned, but to appease her worries, I thought I'd ask around to see if any of you have any direct experience with the public schools in Stamford, specifically Northeast Elementary and Turn of River middle school.
I'd really appreciate your feedback on the schools, positive or negative. I just feel like my MIL is talking to her friends who sent their kids to private schools over 20 years ago because the public schools weren't that good back then. That said, the GreatSchools rating gives Northeast a 5 out of 10. But, I really feel like a lot of this has to do with the fact that Stamford is a city and so you have a diverse population attending the school (something we want) and you may have non-native English speakers which might lower test scores. etc.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance!
