About the Fairfield Public Schools

The education of Fairfield’s children is a top priority in town and is evidenced by the top-notch public schools. Fairfield has 11 elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools—in addition to an early childhood learning center and an alternative high school. Students also have access to such magnet programs as the Regional Center for the Arts in Trumbull, the Center for Global Studies in Norwalk, and the Aquaculture School in Bridgeport.

Fairfield consistently outperforms the rest of the state in standardized tests from elementary through high school and 90 percent of high school students graduate and go on to higher education.
