Posted February 24, 2010

I have been a Tuttle parent for 7 years, graduating one child from Tuttle with 3 children still attending. I have never seen such a well-rounded faculty and staff as Tuttle has to offer, and I compare it to the school systems in Trumbull and Milford, CT. The hands-on participation with students, parents and faculty that Anita Ruff exhibits as The Chief Administrator should be commended. She is a strict, knowledgable disciplinarian with caring and compassion for all who enter Tuttle's doors. The teaching staff is phenomenal, and other staff members including maintenance, office and cafeteria are truly commendable as well. I highly reccomend this school, and will surely be sad when all 4 of my children have seen thier final days at Tuttle.

My two girls attend Tuttle Elementary. They refuse to even try to 'get in' to the infamous Academy (which is also a great school). They have wonderful friends, great teachers, some extracurricular activities, after school help in subjects that need extra attention, if need be. Great little school tucked away in a great little neighborhood!

My child is a student in this school. Tuttle is a great school academic-wise. Through observation though, my husband and I have negative feelings about the principal's lack of compassion towards the children, and feel it's really time for her to retire.

My daughter is in her last year at Tuttle school before she goes off to middle school and my son now goes there too. We've had a great experience there, the teachers and staff are awesome and the leadership by the principal is wonderful. They have interesting field trips and in-school activities outside of the normal classroom study. Children also have an opportunity to be in the band or chorus and at times have been offered other activities like intramurals. My daughter loves being in the Student Council which gives help to the community. I don't know the exact level of parental involvement but it seems fairly high to me.

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.
