Our district is recognized nationally as a premier, dynamic, learner focused school system committed to educational excellence.   Each of our schools is among the top-ranked schools in Connecticut.  In 2019, Wilton High School ranked #2 in the state and #56 in the nation on Newsweek’s annual list of America’s Top High Schools. ranked the Wilton Public Schools’ academics #2 in the state, #3 in the New York City metro area and 15th best in the United States.

Our four schools are organized by grade level (PK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) and maximize opportunities for innovative learning.  Artistic and athletic performances are showcased at the Clune Center for the Arts and Zeoli Field House which also serve as community hubs and sites of may community events.
