Morris Street School was identified an the number one school in Fairfield County for sustained academic achievement over a seven year period. The staff is amazingly focused. The school's culture is welcoming and friendly. Morris Street School has the highest number of children living in poverty and who don't speak English.

Academic programs are okey. But the teacher is helping child with extra academic activities. Need more extracurricular activities.

Posted June 26, 2004

In kindergarten, my daughter's teacher identified her as an advanced reader. I was very happy with the extra opportunities provided to my child to keep her interested in learning. Being a neighborhood school, I also like the fact that everyone is a familiar face, and by the time my daughter finished 5th grade, we felt like part of the school 'family'.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
