BRISTOL – The Connecticut Association of Schools recently recognized Ellen P. Hubbell School and Greene-Hills School as the Elementary School of the Year and Middle School of the Year for 2022, respectively, as well as Exemplary School Climate Award recipients.

As part of a district-wide message from Superintendent Dr. Catherine Carbone, she lauded the performance of both institutions for being examples of academic success.

“It goes without saying that our students, families, teachers, administrators, and staff from both school communities are well-deserving of this prestigious recognition,” she said. “Once again, congratulations Greene-Hills School and Ellen P. Hubbell School.  You all continue to demonstrate what is best about your schools, Bristol Public Schools, and public education at large.”

The application process is a rigorous one, she continued, and lifts up the work of those that display the “best in the profession.”

Data by both schools was presented to the CAS Selection Committee in areas focusing on safe and healthy school environments; model practices that push forward customized instruction, strategies to prepare students for high standards; services that go beyond those of a normal school in areas such as activities and supports; and parent engagement.

Because of their recognition, the BPS school pair will be asked to share their programs and best practice knowledge with other association members by welcoming visitors to view their respective schools in action, write for organization publications and offer workshops for fellow schools. 

“While described in many different ways, climate is in fact embedded in almost all aspects of school life and it has long been known that positive climate is critical to achieving success for all students,” said Carbone.. “Knowing every scholar by name, strength, story, and need was evident during the site visits and set both schools apart.”

The Connecticut Association of Schools is a nonprofit organization connected with the National Association of Elementary School Principals, Association for Middle Level Education, National Association of Secondary School Principals and National Federation of State High School Associations. CAS seeks to support Connecticut schools services in its academic and athletic senses from kindergarten through twelfth grade, both in government and the classroom.
