This school teaches to the test. A few weeks are dedicated to this. It doesn't challenge gifted students. There are very few field trips. The community is generally materialistic. Parents are involved in volunteering time or fundraising but have little persuasion with curriculum decisions. The lunch and recess aides take their responsibilities far too seriously therefore there is little relaxation for kids even during their free time. The shortest lunch period is 20 min. long. The pressure to succeed is not healthy.

Chapman is an outstanding school. The teachers go out of their way to work with parents and help all kids achieve to their fullest potential. Teachers in this district really teach kids how to think about their learning.

Chapman is a jewel. It is by far the best choice we made in schools, selecting it over Highland. Class sizes are manageable; parent and volunteer participation is outstanding. The teachers really do enjoy the children and it shows. I have the utmost respect for the teachers.

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.
