Posted April 3, 2014

I am looking to send my son to another schools. His third grade teacher is inflexible and rigid, and does not seem to have a genuine love of children. As an educator myself, I am disappointed in the lack of understanding from the principal and teacher about the needs of children with emotional disabilities. That being said, the guidance counselor is wonderful!

I am glad my daughter goes to Prudence Crandall. All of the teachers she has had throughout the years were and are wonderful. They stay in contact with me and she always comes home happy. I don't have the same experiences with my other two children that attend two different schools in the same town. Keep up the good work. You guys rock!!!!

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.
