This school literally saved my son. He was not engaged in school at all in his home school environment. Once we enrolled him in the 1/2 day program here, his level of engagement skyrocketed. The teachers area all working professionals in their respective fields and they provide the students with real expertise grounded in real life. Love this school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT 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.
