A message from principal Emma Warne Balter -  
"I think the best thing about Six to Six is the sense of community.  We are a close knit group of students, families, teachers, staff and community members who look out for each other. In addition, we strive to promote curiosity about the world around us.  We look for opportunities to engage in our surroundings and try new adventures, like a boat-ride on Long Island Sound, or a trip to the Discovery Adventure Center.  We encourage kids to give back to their community, collecting food items or mittens and gloves for those  in need.  I look forward to welcoming you into this very special family, where you are seen and heard, and where your opinion matters."

Thank you for your interest in our Six to Six Community.  Each year a waiting list of applicants is generated through a blind lottery. A separate lottery is held for applicants from each town/city by grade level. Children are admitted based on the availability of space and their number on the waiting list. In each grade level there are students from our member districts of Bridgeport, Stratford, Fairfield, Trumbull and Monroe. Children from other towns may be admitted to fill a vacancy when we reach our agreed upon maximum student enrollment from our listed member districts. Please click the link below and choose the tab that corresponds with your town to access the waiting list.  Students who are highlighted at the moment have received an acceptance email to the address on the application.  The waiting list is updated as spots become available and offered to the next child on the list. Please do not contact the school for information regarding the waiting list

***The Connecticut General Statute Public Act 23-208 now requires that children turn five years old on or before September 1st to be admitted into kindergarten. The law does specify that school districts are required to implement an exemption process for families that request one. If you choose to apply for kindergarten for your child born between September 2nd and December 31st, your application serves as a request for a waiver and your child's enrollment will be contingent on assessment of your child's development. Details regarding this assessment process will be provided in the event that a space is potentially available for your child. In the instance that your waiver for kindergarten is not approved, your application would move to the bottom of the preschool waiting list.

Parent Testimonials 

"I have been an educator for almost 20 years, and never have I seen teachers so devoted, proactive and responsive to not only the individual needs of their students, but also so committed to building a classroom community, or family. Despite the geographic challenges of magnet schools, my children have made friendships that I know will last them a lifetime, and encourage diverse perspectives, empathy and cultural humility. I am so grateful for the wonderful families we have met, and the mutual support we lend to one another. We are proud to be a Six to Six family!" Dana Bossio, a parent of a 3rd and 6th grader. 

"We became part of the Six to Six family in pre-k and decided it was the best fit for our child for elementary school. Six to Six has an engaging, challenging curriculum with high academic standards, a diverse population and staff that has become family. It's got a wonderful community feel and I'm confident he's receiving an amazing education and building friendships that will last a lifetime!" Brittany Lohnes a parent to a second grader.
