    Once considered one of the best HS in CT Pomperaug has been headed downhill for several years now. When our eldest son graduated in 2002 it was still a top public education venue but you will find many parents of the current students complaining about indifferent teachers ongoing drug problems poor resources. Much of this is likely due to the ongoing budget struggles with Middlebury (whose residents constantly wish to reduce taxes at the school's expense) but some of it is a product of administration. Southbury schools are excellent through the Middle School levels but more and more parents in what is predominantly a high-income white collar town are opting to send their children to private institutions nearby -- myself included.

    Pomperaug Elementary School is one of the finest schools you will ever have the privilege of being associated with. My late son was profoundly disabled and spent many years as part of the Pomperaug family while in the special ed. program. From the front office staff and principal to the nurses therapists teacher's aids and of course the most conscientious teachers you will ever encounter Pomperaug Elementary was a true blessing to our sons and our family.
