GREENWICH, Conn. -- Most Greenwich schools performed above the state average, and no schools were graded as substandard, according to a report by education advocacy group Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now.

ConnCAN's report cards assign letter grades to every school in the state in an effort to help families get information about school performance in a given area.

“We designed these tools to provide parents, community members and lawmakers a clear and honest look at how well our schools are doing and whether children are learning what they need to succeed,” ConnCAN CEO Jennifer Alexander said in a statement. “These report cards offer bright spots where educators are proving every day that if given the opportunity and support, every child can succeed academically.”

Grades are based on are based on the Connecticut State Department of Education’s new performance accountability system, the School Performance Index , which pulls data from two major standardized tests, The Connecticut Mastery Test, administered to students in grades 3 through 8, or the Connecticut Academic Performance Test, taken in 10th grade.

Based on the SPI for each school, ConnCAN then assigned a letter grade, with an SPI of 88 or above constituting an "A." Scores between 79-87 earned a "B;" 67-78 constituted a "C;" 51-67 earned a "D;" and 0-50 was an "F."

Here is a list of each school in the Greenwich area, along with its town and report card grade from ConnCAN:

  • Cos Cob School: B
  • Julian Curtiss School: B
  • Glenville School: A
  • Hamilton Avenue School: C
  • New Lebanon School: C

The news isn't as good for all students across the state. ConnCAN also said nearly 40,000 students are stuck in 63 persistently failing schools across the state. The majority of these schools are concentrated in five cities—Bridgeport, Hartford, New Britain, New Haven and Waterbury—and disproportionately impact students of color and students living in poverty.
