  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on December 01, 2009
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school sends kids onward to Yale or Jail and everthing inbetween. The rigor is there for students who want to succeed. It is also a great school for special needs kids. In fact, you'd have to sue in other districts to get the services Danbury offers for autistic, asbergers, ADHA, etc. Immigrant population drags general scores down, but it has a great scholastic/academic track record for placement in the best universities in the country.
