Connecticut Childrens Medical Center School makes New Britain its home

CCMC School Officially Opens

New Britain Mayor Timothy O’Brien speaks to a crowd of attendees gathered for the grand opening and special ribbon cutting ceremony of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center School on John Downey Drive.  

The CCMC School offers comprehensive special education for students, ages 5 to 21, who require intensive intervention because of severe emotional, behavioral, cognitive and/or learning problems.

There are currently 125 students referred from 32 public schools throughout the state, with capacity for 175 total students.

Barbara Brown, director of education for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, said her organization spent two years searching for the right location for its school.

“When we came across 300 John Downey Drive [a former warehouse] we knew we had found the right home,” she said.
