As a student there are barley any fights. The food is disgusting you will be better off Bring home lunch. Most clusters work together except stem. Overall it's a great school


Posted August 26, 2013

My daughter had an amazing 6th grade experience! Her teachers were very caring and the communication between the school and I was always on-going. The school is safe and the teachers care about the progress of the children. As for the other reviews about excessive fighting, as an educator I can say that this happens in EVERY school. The school is much better than that of its reputation!

I HATE THIS SCHOOL Im a student and I recently moved so I no longer go to this school I go to Broadview and ITS WAY BETTER. I was afraid of going to school everyday not knowing what fights were gonna happen today think twice before sending your kids.....


Posted September 20, 2012

Feel bad for the kids who go here...fights, bullies, etc only way to avoid it is to be in more advanced classes...but still.

My overall dealings with RPMS has been a very unpleasant experience. My son has accomplished nothing while there. He has bought home failing report card for three years. When I myself asked for help in trying to find out why this might be I was ignored. I do not and will not recommend this school as a first choice.

Rogers Park has much issues that need to be looked into. The more help you ask for the more your ignored there. By most staff. The answer to every issue there is to suspend the students.

Rogers Park is a highly disciplined school with a strong Principal as the guiding force. The school abides by its stated values and is focused on academics. The teachers are good and a student who has a learning desire gets many opportunities to excel. I would like to thanks Rogers park, the Principal and its teachers in helping my daughter adjust very well in her first year in the US.

As a Parent of Rogers Park Middle School I believe this school needs work. There is no order or structure in the classroms and especially the cafeteria. Many of the teachers are not qualified for their jobs. I am deeply dissapointed with the school as a whole. I know they are trying but their efforts are coming up short.

Being a student of RPMS I have to say that even if it isn't the perfect school, it's still a great one. Teachers like Dr. Agoora and Mrs. Caldara make learning fun and makes you want more, chances of starting to take Algebra classes in 7th grade is amazing and than be able to take IPS (Introduction to Physical Science) is a great oportunity. It gives you a head start in a great High School career and increasing the chances the students have of getting into a good college.

My childs experience overall was a good one. There were two incidents in the three years he went there, but nothing that couldn't be resolved. We as parents just have to stay active in the school system & remember that our children are not perfect, even though they may seem so to you.

I am a parent of a resource student that attended this school. I was total disappointed by the some of the Staff and behavior of some of these children. The teasing and fighting that goes on in that school was horrifying. When approaching the staff in regards to the issues, the victim was treated as if the were the abuser. There are a few good teachers, but it was very far and in between..

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.
