Connecticut Schools

We began with a single school. 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 schools in New Haven, Bridgeport and Hartford. At all of our 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

  • Across Connecticut

    AF Connecticut students grew more than their peers across the host districts, state, and affluent districts. And by the end of high school, our students are going on to some of the top colleges in the country.

  • In Bridgeport

    AF Bridgeport Academy fourth-graders are outperforming their peers in the state’s wealthiest, highest-performing districts. In math, only four school districts in the entire state had stronger scores.

  • In Hartford

    Our AF Hartford eighth-graders not only outscored their district, magnet and state peers in ELA, they scored above the state average for students from middle- and upper- income families, topping it by 3% points.

  • In New Haven

    AF Amistad High is ranked #1 in Connecticut. And that’s not all. Our Elm City College Prep students outscored the state proficiency average in both subjects, and in math, Elm City eighth graders were the highest scorers in the AF Connecticut network.
