Im a student here and I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. The teachers are so fun and good spirited! This school also has such a variety of different people too, as in different races of people. The mixture of people introduced me to different foods and different traditions in other families.

My son is finishing up his sixth grade year and I am extremely pleased with his progress. His teachers stayed on top of his academics and made me feel confident in their abilities as educators.

Broadview has a range of programs that benefit the children, and teachers and administrators who are open-minded and flexible to my childrens' needs. These programs (G&T, Tech Ed, Consumer Ed) are in danger of being eliminated due to budget cuts and I am hoping we can help by attending budget meetings and speaking up!

i loved broadview. I moved in the middle of 7th grade 4 years ago to Danbury. This school was the best middle school i've ever attended. The High school is awesome, and i love the Danbury staff and students. It was very easy to make alot of friends. In other rich schools it was hard to find frineds, through rich snobby kids.

I have been attending Broadview Middle School for about a week now. Even though it has only been a week I think that it is a great school and has very nice teachers. I love everything in the school and I am very happy with all of the academics and activities. I would recommend this school! GO BROADVIEW BEARS!

I've been a long time resident of Danbury and attended Broadview myself. My child will be finishing up 8th grade and overall the experience was not too good. I've chaperone a few dances and the kids are just wild. The staff seem to be there, just to be there. They are not responsive, don't return calls, don't follow up,and sadly many of the newer teachers don't seem to know how to handle the disruptive kids. The principal is nice, but completely not in touch with what's going on in his school. Luckily my child did not have any major 'incidents' in the 3 years there and because I was persistent (a pain in their butt). I am glad my child is moving on out of the school. Hopefully Danbury High will be a better experience.

My daughter just completed 6th grade in this school. I thought the teachers were excellent. All stayed on top of my daughter's homework, and I was immediately notified of any concerns which may have arisen during the year. I am happy with this school so far.

I used to go to this school two years ago when i moved to the school from England. It was only ever going to be for a year but it was time to go i was upset to leave a great school. The best i have ever attended.The art program is brilliant and the teachers are very caring and helpful towards the students. The discipline is strict but casual, the kids understand they have to stay under control and they do so. The head teacher is a wonderful character with an obvious love of the students, helping them in any way possible. The best teachers are Ms Prybylski, Mr Mcollough, Mr Yantorno and ms kelsey! Broadview is the school to choose, the best in the area!Thankyou to everyone there! Alex Long

I attended this school I and I think it is wonderful. If you don't think so you need to wake up. People act as if there aren't any good kids at this school. They have a dance squad and an excelent concert choir.We also have a group of kids going to Florida without there parents to learn about animals and technology.This is the best school.

I think it is a good school, with good teachers that really care about the kids! I think the teachers like to keep up with the parents to let them know whats going on, and they have really good after school programs!I think it is a great school!!

Attending this school prompted our move out of the area. The principal is a nice man but is not on top of the problems in the school. The students are disrespectful and rules are not obeyed. The students have to sit in assigned seating at lunch because the teachers have trouble keeping them under control and there were numerous fights and incidents of acting out. The dances are out of control with dirty dancing being allowed. Many kids act out in class and make it hard for the others to learn. Phone calls to teachers and administration are not returned. I feel the teachers are in denial and all walk around saying what a great school it is. Saying it doesn't make it so though. The parents need to wake up. I would not recommend this school.

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.
