Amazing teachers, beautiful building, and a great community. The students are all really proud of their school and it shows!

I am a RLMS grad and it is a wonderful school. They provided me with a terrific education and helpful, supportive teachers, and gave me all the tools necessary to excel. Most of the kids were also lovely, except of course for the odd bully which every school has a few of, and I made many friends there. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.

Rlms is a very nice school. It is a nice school with good teachers, a good curriculem, and always lets us feel secure. It is a nice place, always clean and they do a great job accomodating everyone they can. It is a good set up, and it is definately a great place. I say this as a rlms grad

As a graduate I personally thought that my RLMS experience was good. Teachers were excellent and classes were challenging. My only quam was the lack of freedom granted to students. Now that I attend high school it is exhilerating to not have a teacher constantly watching you at all times.

Roger Ludlowe is a great school. As for the previous 2 comments made by the parents of a rating of 1 star out of 5, do not blame the teachers just because your child is unable to keep up with the class. I can barely say that you are a parent, for you have horrible English; spelling errors and sentence structure. Also, what parent complains in such an ill manner? The majority of the teachers do make an effort. I've had friends across all the crews, and not one of them complained about their teaching. At times, students do feel uncomfortable and are tired of school, but that's for every student. So do not judge this school by your child's output. After all, almost every child hates school. I didn't say Roger Ludlowe is the best school, but it is a very dedicated school.

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.
