connecticut magnet school reviews

"The school is totally different from other magnet schools because it’s a part of Goodwin University. My daughter can take 30 tuition-free, transferrable college credits at Goodwin while still in high school. You just don’t get that at other high schools."

Ian, CTRA Parent
