The Town of Ellington is a vibrant and growing community located in the suburbs of Hartford, CT. The Ellington Public Schools is a dynamic district that provides a high quality education to approximately 2,700 students. The district has five schools: three elementary schools (PK-6), one middle school (7-8), and high school (9-12).
The Ellington Public Schools, in conjunction with the Town of Ellington, is performing a Facilities Study to examine and analyze the following needs of the district:
- The trend of increasing student enrollment;
- The aging of the district’s facility infrastructure;
- Ensuring that facilities are prepared for the district’s vision of academic programs.
