Elementary Schools in Pomfret School District


The Pomfret School District in Connecticut is home to a single elementary school, Pomfret Community School, which serves students from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. This standout school consistently outperforms the state average on standardized tests, ranking 93 out of 491 Connecticut elementary schools and earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Pomfret Community School boasts impressive academic achievements, with SBAC test scores that significantly exceed the state averages across multiple grade levels and subject areas. For example, 3rd grade English Language Arts proficiency is 70.7% compared to the state average of 45.5%, and 7th grade Mathematics proficiency is 73.8% versus the state's 39.9%. The school's small student-teacher ratio of 11.2 to 1 and higher-than-average spending of $18,233 per student likely contribute to its success.

However, the school's student population is predominantly White (93.51%), which is notably higher than the state average. This lack of diversity could indicate potential equity issues that warrant further investigation. Additionally, the school's relatively low free/reduced lunch rate of 25.68% suggests a more affluent student body, which may also play a role in the school's strong academic performance. Overall, Pomfret Community School stands out as a high-achieving institution within the Pomfret School District, though its demographic makeup is an area that warrants further examination.
