Premises

The school moved from its Perry Hill Road site in 2001. The premises was subject to a $41.5 million renovation to turn it into a school for fifth- and sixth-graders (now called Perry Hill School). During the work there was controversy when confidential personnel data were found strewn about the site in September 2007.[3]

The school now shares the same campus with Shelton High School, surrounded by a wooded landscape.
