Norwalk touts academic success in 2019 grads’ college acceptances

NORWALK, Conn. — It’s spectacular, Norwalk Superintendent of Schools Steven Adamowski said: about 97% of this year’s Norwalk high school graduates are going to college or university in the fall.

“I think this is a tribute to the staff of our four high schools and particularly to the work of their counselors, something that is a source of pride for our school system, something that I hope will attract parents to Norwalk, or to be retained in Norwalk,” Adamowski said at Tuesday’s BoE meeting.

More than 780 Norwalk high school students have accepted their diplomas last week, a Norwalk Public Schools press release said. They are fanning out to 415 institutes of higher learning, Adamowski said.

“I think this is a tribute to the staff of our four high schools and particular to our counselors,” Adamowski said, commenting the he hopes the success will attract parents to move to Norwalk.

“Our students from Norwalk are accepted to all the best colleges in the United States. I mean, it’s just absolutely amazing: Harvard, Yale, all the Ivy League schools, UCLA, Boston College, the University of Miami – the list goes on and on and on,” Mayor Harry Rilling said at last week’s Common Council meeting. “I think that’s a testament to where our school system is going and how far they have come.”

Brien McMahon’s ceremony marked its 58th annual commencement, with more than 410 students graduating this year, while 380 Norwalk High School seniors accepted diplomas at the 117th annual commencement.

At Brien McMahon, Nicole Baldwin was valedictorian, Seixas Aldrich was salutatorian and Victoria McCaffrey was senior class president. It was the first year BMHS awarded International Baccalaureate (IB) diplomas, to 22 students.

Julia Turek was the Norwalk Early College Academy (NECA) valedictorian and Gianluca Adolfo Trofa was NHS valedictorian. Christian Emilios Gavrielidis was salutatorian and Stephanie Corrales was senior class president

Students at both schools were awarded the Connecticut State Seal of Biliteracy. “This honor, established by the State Board of Education, acknowledges that a student has demonstrated mastery of two or more languages. The Seal of Biliteracy also provides recognition to English learners for the great value of developing English and maintaining their primary language,” the NPS press release said.

“The overall NPS graduation rate for 2018 was higher than the State for the fourth year in a row,” the release said. “This ranking positions NPS as first in our District Reference Group (DRG), which compares NPS with other districts with similar socioeconomic status across the state. Increasing Norwalk’s graduation rate is part of the overall district objectives to implement the right strategies, systems and supports to ensure that all students leave Grade 12 ready for future academic or work success.”

A full list of graduates was provided to NancyOnNorwalk by Wilcox Williams.

Wow. What an amazing list – for both its diversity and its quality. Congratulations to all of the parents and families who helped these kids succeed, to this point. And, of course, it’s not over. And congrats to all of Norwalk’s graduating students who are seeing their hard pay off. And congrats to the Norwalk teachers and administrators for this achievement: 97% of graduates matriculating to higher learning is an extraordinary statistic and should be the envy of almost school district nationwide, as currently on average fewer than 70% of high school graduates go straight to college.

Impressive especially compared to past decades. Reportedly State data suggested only 40% college completion rates for City graduates in a world where college is viewed as the “new high school”. Sadly the inability of our City Hall leadership to encourage major business to invest in Norwalk means our new high school grads will not reside in our highly transient City after either high school or college owing to very limited job opportunities outside of Big Box. Norwalk remains a highly transient commuter City where even its public employees live outside the City. We ought focus our efforts on becoming a City with good jobs for City residents. Including our graduates.

Continues to surprise me why City leadership hasn’t any interest in securing a 4 year college for Norwalk. We’re the only CT City w/o one. A 4 year college would likely greatly increase the college graduation rates for our youngsters and encourage new business. Some of us have been advocating a 4 year college for many decades. So far no Mayoral candidate has ever raised a 4 year college. Nor lowering taxes. Sigh.

Very impressive! Congratulations, Norwalk graduates! Your community is so incredibly proud of you all! Oh, the places you’ll go!

Piberman
Will you now stop with the fake news about Norwalk schools having low college bound students. Also your comment about past years only having a 40 percent college completion rate is simply not true. Also we are not the only city in Ct without a 4 year college. Piberman facts do matter

Congratulations to all the students.

Outstanding News!!! Congratulations.
I was excited to see many SUNY schools on the list including my and my son’s Alma Mater SUNY Plattsburgh. I encourage everyone looking at colleges to visit The SUNY’s for a outstanding education at half the tuition of a private four year school. It’s a well kept secret that should not be a secret for Connecticut students.

Congratulations to all graduates, and to the parents who have been positive influences in the education process. The road ahead for you will be that much more fulfilling. Wishing them all the best of success in the future.

Super impressive! Happy to see my alma mater on here. Congrats to all the grads and their parents! The best is yet to come.
