My daughter loves to go to school and she has made so much progress in less then a year in kindergarten.

Our adopted son, who is now in 3rd grade, was diagnosed with hearing loss somewhat late. He is developmentally behind. The principal and special ed staff at East Farms have taken our son under their wings. We can't say enough about the way they care for him and for their efforts to help him catch up academically.

I had to move 3 times in last 5 years in different states and I find this one the best. Of course the buildings or furniture are not new if you are looking for that. Its the teaching - the teachers, the environment and the way they are being groomed. I wish I had studied there as a child.

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.
