This is an excellent school, with talented and dedicated teachers. They inspire their students using creative ideas and teaching methods and get them involved. They do focus on the technology and expose their students to future possibilities they might want to explore. However, the workload is much and can be overwhelming to some. My child just completed 6th grade and he has been much more invested in grades and school than he was in elementary school. The school is bringing out the good in him.

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.
