Best Public Schools in Stamford, CT

While some schools, such as Rogers International School and Strawberry Hill an ext. of Rogers International, perform well above the district average, others struggle, with some elementary schools having proficiency rates under 30%. This suggests significant inequities in educational opportunities and resources across the Stamford School District, which will require further analysis to understand and address.
