We are proud that 100% of our graduates over the last twelve years have gone on to college, including those who dance professionally. A large percentage of these students are the first to go to college and to speak English in their families. Our students reflect our Stamford’s population. We have both affluent families and those who struggle to feed and house their families. Notably, the School serves a continually increasing Hispanic population that reflects the rise in the Hispanic community in Stamford. Thirty percent of our children live in single parent homes.
