I am a new student at this school and so far I thinks it is great there are a few things I would add or change but overall it is great

I love this school. There is a great rapport with the teachers and staff. They have an excellent accelerated program for the gifted children also. My two children felt welcome to go to the staff and speak their minds about any problems.It is an old building but the teaching staff makes up for what it lacks in beauty!

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.
