TRUMBULL MIDDLE SCHOOLS MAKE TOP 30 IN THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT
Herbst: “Our continued national and state recognition is proof positive that our public school system is truly heading in the right direction.”
June 18, 2015 - - First Selectman Timothy M. Herbst on Thursday extolled praise for the Trumbull Public School System, specifically for the administrators and staff at Hillcrest and Madison Middle School upon learning that both of Trumbull’s Middle Schools have ranked in the top 30 in the State of Connecticut. Hillcrest Middle School was ranked the 25th best middle school in the state, followed by Madison Middle School at 28th. The 2015 Niche Rankings assessed the top 100 middle schools in Connecticut. Niche says it ranked 19,710 middle schools nationwide based on key student statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents. A high ranking indicates that the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students and faculty, and the students are very happy with their experiences.
“Our continued national and state recognition is proof positive that our public school system is truly heading in the right direction,” stated First Selectman Herbst. “As the son of public school teachers and as a product of the Trumbull Public School System, I take exceptional pride in these achievements and rankings.” The First Selectman was pleased that the rankings have had broad crossover at both the elementary and middle school level.
This excellent news follows recent recognition last week that all six of our elementary schools ranked in the top 150 in the State of Connecticut, according to the Niche rankings. “Our commitment to low class size, improvements to classroom technology and our strong curriculum is clearly having a meaningful and positive impact on Trumbull’s children. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Board of Education, Dr. Cialfi, his administrative team, our principals, teachers and staff at all of these schools. Their hard work in the classroom is paying off. This recognition further improves our quality of life and encourages families to choose Trumbull as the community where they live, work and raise their families.”
