We serve students from Pre-Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 8 in a new 41 million dollar facility which includes a planetarium, butterfly vivarium, greenhouse, aquatics lab, and educational technologies in each classroom. The environmental sciences theme is integrated into our standards-based curriculum and is assessed by the Connecticut Mastery Test. Students receive a comprehensive education which includes rigorous instruction in language arts, reading, mathematics, social studies, and science. Students also take electives in art, physical education, music, and environmental sciences. Our maximum enrollment is projected to be 600 students, 3 classrooms per grade level. Students come for all over the state, but most of our students are from the Greater Metropolitan area of Hartford. We provide transportation to nearly 50 different towns around Hartford.
