I love Church St school because we are a little community. A family if you will. The teachers are wonderful, and the children are friendly and have positive attitudes.

Church street has a great principal and great teachers. They truly care about the kids. We are always well informed about what's going on in the school and the community.

We have four children. Two of our children have attended Church Street School and have experienced great success. We have a child that will begin kindergarten in the fall. We have been at this school for ten years now and have had a great experience here. Both of our daughters have left the school with academic awards. The staff is attentive to each child's needs as well as to parent concerns. Both of our daughters feel their sixth grade experience was the best and still consider this teacher their favorite. Neither one of our children wanted to leave Church Street School for the Middle School. We have enjoyed our time at Church Street School.

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.
