Child just started school. Very pleased with the teachers & staff.

Edgewood is a very nice school. My kids were new to the school this year and I have to say I was very impressed with the school. The teachers were great, the principal was also great. They all care about the students and they are on top of everythings. Parents are very involved which is very nice to see. My kids had a first great year.

The school's principal and PTO have set up events/activities/talks that are in the evening so that working parents can participate. They have at least 1 event a month which is awesome! It helps the parents, teachers and other staff to see each other and build a relationship in order to facilitate better communication. My son is in Kindergarten so this is jus the beginning but it has been wonderful so far!

Edgewood is a great school. My oldest girl is in 5th grade and has been in Edgewood since Kindergarten and my youngest is in 2nd grade. I feel safe with my girls going there. Some after school activities are offered during the year. It is a friendly environment and my girls love going to school. There are also plenty of opportunities for parents to become involved.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
