I think Hallen is a good School. I really like the teachers they are very involved and really care about their students. The rules are very enforced, their is a lot of stuff they need to do to make the school a comfortable place for the kids but besides that I am a happy parent my child came from a catholic school and I can tell you that I like the public school a lot better.

This school has alot of great teachers and staff; unforturantly this school needs alot of help;they need a beautiful play ground for students to get plenty of exercise, they need air conditions for the entire school; in the summer the school is so hot my daughter along with other students who have asthma usually struggle daily in the summer time.This is the year 2006 kids need to know the computer; they need to have a computer lab so that teachers can create lesson planns for their students that envolves using the computer examples of how it can be use, with science and social studies. After school activities should always be available in all schools.This school has alot of portential;they just need to have the state government get involve and help; I mean aren't we a state who believes in the No Chld Left Behind Law!

My son just transfered from a NY school and it seems to be a good school. I am concerned that they do not make provisions for gifted children until the 4th grade. His in 2nd grade and the curriculum is a bit slow for him. The teachers are friendly and engaging and my son really loves his new school. Unfortunately, the afterschool program will no longer be around after June 06.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CMT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
