My daughter is in the first grade, so I don't have a lot of experience, but for the past 2 years this has been a great school. The staff and other parents are always friendly and helpful. My daughter loves it! That to me is the most important part.

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.
