Posted March 22, 2004

I have had two children attend King Street Intermediate and highly recommend it. The staff is exemplary. My children have received a wonderful education while being cared for in a caring environment. They have also been exposed to many extra enrichment activities which are not available at other schools in the district.

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.
