Wallingford School District


The Wallingford School District in Connecticut consists of 12 schools, including 8 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 high schools, serving students from diverse socioeconomic and racial backgrounds. While the district showcases several standout schools, there are also inconsistencies in academic performance and areas for improvement across the schools.

Among the standout schools, Mary G. Fritz Elementary School of Yalesville stands out with its high state-wide ranking, strong academic performance, and 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. Pond Hill School also impresses with its low student-teacher ratio, potentially providing a more personalized learning environment. Additionally, Rock Hill School boasts the highest proficiency rates in the district for 5th-grade students in English Language Arts, Math, and Science.

However, the data also reveals inconsistencies in academic performance across the district, with some schools, such as Dag Hammarskjold Middle School and Parker Farms School, lagging behind the district and state averages. This suggests a need for more equitable educational opportunities and the addressing of socioeconomic factors that may impact student learning. Additionally, the variation in student-teacher ratios across the elementary schools indicates that some students may have more personalized attention and support than others, contributing to the disparities in academic outcomes.
