My child is extremely happy at Korn School. His third grade teacher is an extraordinary veteran educator, a firm disciplinarian but also nurturing. She has a structured program that suits my child and she is working hard to prepare her students for the 'next level' I love going into Korn School and seeing the classrooms all busily and happily working, sometimes in groups or individually with the teacher. I sense a warmth and caring in this school and I would definately recommend Korn School to all parents.

Very unhappy with Korn school. It has declined dramatically in the last 2 years. SO much time is spent ignoring discipline problems and academics are suffering. Reward system for students requiring discipline plans is just ridiculous. Can never get a straight answer from the principal. Looking forward to moving on to Memorial 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.
