IAR is the worst school by far in the Farmington School district. I can not believe that its rated 10 out of 10. First off the school was built in the 1950's so it is old and is not a good atmosphere for children to be in, let alone learn. The seventh grade teachers treat you like little kids. Also, the principal is a little off.

Hi, I use to go to I.A.R. it is a great school. It has great students and teachers. Mrs Flowers is a great Art teacher. I love my teachers there and I missed them so much.

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.
