This school did not get a 4 because it's good.However, the good news is the Magnet schools are good and Bristol's poor CMT scores have caused them to be uncapped to Bristol students. I expect this not to be published since everyone commenting likes Mrs Cassin. I am well aware that that is not the case. My daughter now attends a magnet school with 41 Bristol students in Hartford and her CMT scores have substantially increased,even though she missed 10 days. Her school is a silver school,top 5% in the US,while only Bristol Central is silver in Bristol.She has a book report due every month and she knows her time table because they drilled her in fourth grade,unlike Bristol.She comes home dancing and singing. I can trust them not to let her outside in the rain. Through her magnet school, she went to Starbase in fourth grade and Discovery Center Camp at the YMCA in Woodstock,CT this year. Who knows what next year holds.She liked her teachers at both Stafford and the Magnet school. Disciplinary problems are in both, so she's learning to cope. She has 3 more years until highschool.We're looking for a good fit Magnet school, maybe Trinity.Magnet schools start in preschool.

I have had two boys through this school and I can't tell you enough how wonderful the teachers are! Especially 4th & 5th grade. Mrs. Cassin is great with the kids and has many spirit events to bring the children,parents and teachers together. Best teachers- best school!

I just moved here from Massachusetts and as any parent would be I was very nervouse for my children to start school in a new town. To my surprise my children had a smooth transition and they love school. The teachers a great and both my children have stated they like this school better than their old one because they teach us better. I can not praise their teachers enough. Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Kulesa thank you!

My grandson attends the preschool program, he loves going to school there, the teachers are wonderful and really care about the children. I cannot say enough about this school other than it is an excellent school to send your child to.

Principal Cassin is the best, she truly cares about all the kids & knows them all by name. The teachers offer great academics for the kids, and kids are encouraged to perform at their best. My 2 girls are in their 2nd year at Stafford and it has been a wonderful 2 years, both girls are doing great, and they love to go to school! Parent involvement is great, they also offer lots of family fun activities, which is great! We have not experience anything negative at Stafford.
