Farmington Board of Education

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>The Farmington Education Department runs seven schools, including the town's four elementary schools (Union School, West District, East Farms and Noah Wallace), Westwoods Upper Elementary School, Irving A. Robbins Middle School and Farmington High School. An inclusive preschool is offered at Irving A. Robbins and Noah Wallace; it prepares special needs and mainstream children for kindergarten in an inclusive environment.</p>
<p>Farmington's schools are excellent, with Connecticut Mastery Scores over 90 percent for almost all subjects across the grades.</p> <p>In the five-year goals set in 2010, Farmington has outlined rigorous academic standards for how students perform on tests in English, math, science, social studies, music and arts, wellness and health, world languages and physical education. In addition, the district has added less tangible skills such as communication and collaboration, critical thinking and reasoning, problem solving and innovation and self-direction and resourcefulness to student requirements.</p> <p>Offices are in the Town Hall on the first floor. Superintendent Kathleen Greider, now joined by longtime East Farms principal Assistant Superintendent Mike Galluzzo, oversees the schools together with the Board of Education, a nine-member elected body chaired by Mary Grace Reed. Board of Education meetings are held twice a month on the second and fourth Monday and are hosted at different schools. For a schedule of meetings, visit fpsct.org or call 860-673-8268. Both agendas and minutes are available online.</p>
