I am planning to join some course in UConn, storrs campus and my husband has a job in groton we want to move from NY city to some location there where there are good school district. By good school district I mean good public schools with focus on academics or charter schools where children are selected based on some tests so that my daughter who will be going in grade 3 gets a good school.

pl. suggest which place will be good to take a house so that we both neednot travel much and it should be near school so that the least our daughter should be travelling.

Your best bet would be Colchester- about halfway between UCONN & Groton. Norwich is another choice that would be a bit more direct.

In either case- the travel time will still be about 40-45 minutes from Colchester/Norwich to Storrs or Groton.

In terms of Schools, East Lyme and Groton public schools both perennially land spots on lists for top Schools in the country, the former generally placing better than the latter, and UCONN actually has a satellite campus in Groton so if your courses are not program specific you could potentially take the courses at the Avery Point campus. As far as charter and private schools, i don't know too much for the area. A good resource for you might be GreatSchools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community they provide some subjective opinions on there about all sorts of schools.

Best of luck in finding the right place for you to live here in eastern Connecticut!

Norwich is fine for High School, but K-8 may be the issue.
