We are very pleased with Glenville School. It is a special place with excellent staff, involved parents, and great kids. The setting is private, beautiful, and safe. The after school program is the best around and there is a strong advanced learning program.

Greenwich is truly setting the standard for excellence with Glenville Elementary School. The class sizes are small and the staff is excellent. The standards are high and the after school program and school events are wonderful. I am so happy to have moved to a top school district!

Excellent after-school program, lots of variety and interesting subjects. After-school day care offers homework help and staff members are very good with kids. Parents are very involved in meetings and school activities. Good community.

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.
