    East School is absolutely the best school my kids have ever been to. No staff has ever impressed me the way East's did. All of the teachers are kind experienced and all genuinely care about the kids. The curriculum is exceptional as is the rest of the New Canaan District. Academics is taken very seriously at East and they focus on prepping the kids for middle school and beyond. Furthermore the parent involvement at this school is unbelievable. Parents are always updated on recent news ect. This school is a great choice for your child.
