Welcome From The Superintendent


Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to CREC Magnet Schools and what it means to receive a CREC education. CREC Magnet Schools develop scholars through engagement with rigorous core curricula, uniquely designed and personalized educational programming, and access to the latest technology available in the field. Every CREC student graduates college and career ready. 

CREC Magnet Schools serve over 8,000 students in 17 schools, from 85 towns throughout the state of Connecticut. Students are drawn to CREC Magnet Schools as a result of the many opportunities offered to them, including: specific themes that allow students to identify, refine, and develop their talents and interests; diverse learning communities that prepare students for living and working as global citizens; career exploration programs that prepare students for higher education and the workforce; real-world experiences that deliver the meaningful opportunities to apply new learning; and facilities that are designed to enhance the theme of the school. CREC Magnet School themes include Montessori, Reggio Emilia, International Baccalaureate, Public Safety, Science and Innovation, Aerospace and Engineering, Advanced Mathematics and Science, Scientific Discovery, Museum Studies, Global Studies, and the Arts.
