A Fairfield County school has been named the state’s “middle school of the year” by the Connecticut Association of Schools.
Earlier this year, Principal Bryan Darcy of David Wooster Middle School in Stratford was notified by the organization that the school had been named a finalist for the award.
After being named finalists, a committee from the Connecticut Association of Schools visited Stratford last month and they will be officially named middle school of the year at the upcoming Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, May 28 at Stratford High School.
“It became obvious throughout the nomination and selection process that Wooster Middle School is providing an exemplary middle school experience to all the students and families within its educational community,” the Connecticut Association of Schools wrote in a release.
“The members of the Awards Committee were extremely impressed with the outstanding and thoughtful work accomplished by the Wooster Middle School staff. From the moment one enters the school, there is a pervasive sense of welcome and positive climate.”
