We moved into Broad Brook a village of East Windsor in 2013 from New Britain (a city). My son received more one on one assistance that he would have received in New Britain. He was on the honor roll and participated in outdoor Track & Field for all four years of high school graduated class of 2012. He received early admissions to University of New Haven and has completed his first year. I am glad we moved here in 2003, East Windsor is small enough and yet larger than the town I work in. I feel safe and especially enjoy community day every second Saturday in May along with the carnivals to raise funding for the firefighters.

My son just graduated from East Windsor High School, and he had a wonderful experience there. We moved from Farmington just before the start of his freshman year, and he has made friends with so many other students who all have serious goals, just like him. He has grown so much due to the challenging curriculum, the caring teachers and the wonderful availability of extracurricular activities. He has had an opportunity to grow musically and athletically, and he was accepted into the college of his choice, where he was awarded a full ride for all 4 years. I cannot say enough about this wonderful school systme.

I have been educated in England for 5 years, Hartford CT for 2 years, and Enfield CT for 5 years. In short I have seen the pros and cons of several education systems. I have raised four kids in East Windsor, and they have all been educated in the East Windsor school system. I have found that the teachers capable and caring K-12. At the High School level, most are available to help the kids with their difficulties and pursue a positive policy of personal expansion for the students. The guidance staff are exceptional and make time for any . In this day and age of heading for the door when the last bell rings - teachers, not students, it has been refreshing and gratifying to me to see East Windsor teachers walk a different line. Genuine caring and education for our kids!

This is one of the most depressing and oppresive institutions in which i have ever set foot. I feel smothered creatively and emotionally. There is a certain administrator who is head-and-shoulders above the rest on the oppression scale. Everything about this school is lacking, mainly due to budget constraints and other factors set forth by the blind and deaf administration. I am glad that i have less than a year left!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT 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 CAPT 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.
