Open Quote AMAZING Close Quote


by a parent
Saturday, June 16, 2012

Open Quote The 2011/2012 was our first experience with the Milford, CT school system after relocating into the district. Our experience with the school was very positive. Our child required a custom education plan to bring them up to state standards. The school provided interventionist specialist which provided the one on one help required to excel. Our child excelled reaching their potential. Based on results and the growth witnessed with our child this school is highly recommended.

Administratively the school could provide training and/or awareness to support staff. Secretary is rude and has an approach which is not customer centric. The school Nurse seemed more concerned with legal liabilities rather doing what was right.

The Orange YMCA program is run directly in the school. The program is affordable, however the program was run like a business rather than a community support service. Our Child enjoyed going a few times a week to play with other children and the fact they could go swimming a few times a month. Our child would receive assistance with homework most days which was helpful. Most councilors were mature, a few required additional life experiences to be more effective.

The Busing services was inconsistent in pick and drop off times.

Overall this was a positive experience, however opportunity exists to improve support services. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
