About West Hartford Connecticut:
West Hartford was incorporated in 1854, prior to that date the town was a parish of Hartford. West Hartford is accessible by major thoroughfares including I-84 which passes through the mid-southern portion of town and Route 44 which passes through the town from Hartford to Avon Mountain.
The town is a mostly upmarket suburb of Hartford and has a vibrant downtown called West Hartford Center. This area is centered around Farmington Avenue and South/North Main Street. West Hartford Center has been the community's hub since the late 1600s.
In 2006 Money Magazine ranked West Hartford as the 10th most educated town in the United States, as measured by the percentage of town residents holding graduate or professional degrees. Connecticut Magazine 2006 rankings put West Hartford Public School education in the top three be among all the cities and towns in Connecticut and for its population class of greater than 50,000 people behind only Greenwich and Fairfield.
The town is home to two public high schools, Conard High School and Hall High School, as well as 11 elementary schools and 3 middle schools in the West Hartford Public Schools. The elementary schools include Aiken, Braeburn, Bugbee, Charter Oak, Duffy, Morley, Norfeldt, Smith, Webster Hill, Whiting Lane and Wolcott. The three middle schools are King Philip, Sedgwick, and the newest Bristow Middle School, located where Kingswood-Oxford Middle school was formerly located. The eleven elementary schools are evenly distributed to either King Philip or Sedgwick, and those that enroll at Bristow are chosen by lottery. After middle school students continue onto high school with their same student body. Those at Sedgwick go on to Conard High School, while those at King Philip go to Hall High School, and students at Bristow return to the same school district they were in during elementary school.
The town also hosts many private and parochial schools including most notably the American School for the Deaf, Kingswood-Oxford School, Renbrook School, Northwest Catholic High School, the Hebrew High School of New England, the Solomon Schechter Day School, St. Brigid School, and the German School of Connecticut.
