The donations of land came in two installments, one being 31 acres (130,000 m2) in 1964 and the second being 15 acres (61,000 m2) in 1966.
The school is at the intersection of Farm Rd and South Avenue, with the latter being a major thoroughfare into and out of downtown New Canaan. The school is set back from South Avenue by a 19-acre (77,000 m2) wetlands buffer which includes running trails.
The school recently completed a multi-year, $60+ million renovation. An additional $14 million was spent on asbestos abatement, a portion of which was reimbursed through the settlement of an asbestos related lawsuit.
In 2010, the program was honored by the American Association of School Librarians with the National School Library Program of the Year Award (acceptance video) and the Connecticut Association of School Librarians with the state equivalent, the Bernice "Bunny" Yesner School Library Media Program of the Year Award. It also received honorable mentions for instructional collaboration from two international educational technology organizations: the International Society for Technology in Education and the Consortium for School Networking.
Forbes magazine recently rated the school a 43 out of 100 for its educational quality.
