There is nothing great about this school. The academics are low especially in Math. Look at the school profile to see how poorly students perform in the state wide standards test called CAPT. The trades offered at this school are not 21st century trades. There is no health care trade at all...one of the largest growing areas in employment. If you want your child to become a brick layer then send him or her to this school. If you want your child to be prepared for a successful college experience there are truly great schools in the area. Henry Abbott Tech is not one of them.

HATS seems to work very will with my child. He is a child that works well with his hands. The staff if helpful and helps with issues that come up. They do not tolerate bullying, and that is nice to know.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT 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 CAPT 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.
