I LOVE THE PASSION IN THIS SCHOOL. All the teachers and principals are welcoming and they put there hard work in to us and care about what we do


Posted April 24, 2010

I love the metamorphosis that children undergo at this school. They come in as frightened, irresponsible sixth graders, and leave as responsible, caring students ready to tackle high school and then the world. Kudos to all the teachers there.

I am a student at Fairfield Woods and it is a great school. There are many after school activities from newspaper to DDR club. There is home ec, computers, art, gym, orchestra, chorus, band, wood shop, and health. We go on a lot of exciting field trips such as natures classroom and medieval dinners. I hope you decide to bring your child here because we don't have new students often.

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.
