Connecticut Schools

When Amistad Academy Middle opened its doors in New Haven in 1999, it proved what’s possible when potential meets opportunity. From there, we grew to 10 outstanding public charter schools in New Haven, Bridgeport and Hartford. At all of our Connecticut schools, our students are outscoring local districts, and they are often performing better than their peers across the state and in wealthy communities.

Connecticut Results

  • Our high schools are among the best in the state.

    U.S. News & World Report named AF Hartford High #3 in Connecticut, and AF Amistad High ranked #12.

  • Even as we raise the bar, we get stronger.

    Since the state began Common Core-aligned assessments in 2015, our students have improved their proficiency rates by 21% points in math and by 15% points in ELA.

  • Advanced is the new proficient.

    More of our elementary schoolers are scoring advanced than any other level on state assessments. Our students scoring remedial are the smallest group. This means that more of our students are mastering material than struggling with it.

  • Enrichment matters.

    The innovative enrichment program at Elm City College Prep Elementary builds activities like soccer into the curriculum during the regular school day. That’s part of the reason why the school became the first in the state to compete as a travel team for South Central Premier in the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association!
