School Overview

Cranbury School is uniquely positioned in a neighborhood woodland section of Norwalk. The school borders Cranbury Park, which is the largest in the city. It serves 415 students in preschool through fifth grade.

The school community prides itself on tradition with multiple generations of students, staff, and families who have attended over the years.

In keeping with the NPS Strategic Operating Plan, the school is developing a pathway focused on the environment. Budget initiatives include the ongoing support of a Science Teacher and purchase of specialized equipment that will allow students to pair technology with learning about their environment with the overall goal of making a positive contribution to the school, their homes, and their community.

The brand new, state-of-the art building is open for the 2023-2024 school year. The new school is designed with floor to ceiling entry-resistant glass, stone, brick and wood to reflect the “park-like nature” of the surrounding area. Additionally, students enjoy a 2,000-square-foot cafeteria, a 4,700-square-foot gymnasium, two music rooms, an art room, learning commons and various resource rooms for programs like Gifted and Talented.

The Cranbury community works collaboratively to encourage all students to develop a life-long love of learning by creating a warm, equitable and inclusive environment. Teachers focus on educating the whole child by providing a learning experience that inspires creativity and curiosity through hands-on learning. Cranbury offers enrichment opportunities and after school programs exploring student interests such as ukulele club.
