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 2011-2012 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.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CAPT 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.
