About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Thames River Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Thames River Academy had 14 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Connecticut average is 13 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Thames River Academy Reviews
TRA is a place i found a home where everyday i was greeted with a smiling Principle and where i found people i can trust and love with anything in teachers and students. If it wasnt for Thames River Academy i wouldn't be where i am and heading in the direction i am. Thank You Mr. Derr and the rest of the staff at TRA
