My daughter is been in this school since 6th grade and now she will be graduating 8th grade. This was the best decision I made for my daughter to attend to this school. Bridgeport school systems have a bad rep this is the best middle school there is. I hope in the future they expand to a elementary and middle school. Very strict but fair and they really take time to help children to do better.

This is an excellent school i 'm so proud to know my child attends one of the best charter schools around. Discipline & Acedemics are top priority, i love this school because they have to be properly attired , in order & follow rules. I just encourage the Director to keep up the immaculate job ,also the teachers are great.

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.
