Why Work In Danbury?

The crown jewel of Connecticut lies in northern Fairfield County, right over the New York border. Danbury incorporates the virtues of both an urban center, together with small town charm. Our city is situated at the heart of the Housatonic Valley Region. Danbury is convenient to major interstates that will take you from Maine to Florida for scenic, as well as fun filled times.

With a population of approximately 80,000 people, we celebrate the diversity of our community. Diversity is our strength, particularly because of the 75 different ethnic groups that call Danbury home. This appealing aspect of our population provides a rich and rewarding educational experience for our community of learners, and adds to the quality of life in our city.

Education for Everyone is our Focus

Danbury Public Schools have achieved a commendable record of balancing their various racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups. Our schools celebrate the diversity and pluralism of our students because they enhance the learning process and are used to facilitate enriched and unique educational experience.
