In Pomfret, our son found a school he was proud to be a part of. The more we learned, the more we understood why. The School encourages curiosity, discovery, and the development of an inner strength, but it also keeps the importance of community in mind. Even as Pomfret continues to evolve, it is maintaining a healthy respect for tradition.
