This school is fantastic. The teachers are great and we learn a lot by researching things we are interested in. You have to be smart to go there.

not the best but some people try but some teachers are unreasonable and my child wants to leave
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 16, 2012

Great school would recommend to anyone. My son has some issues with learning under pressure. The after school program has worked with teachers to be able to help him where needed. Love this school. I have two boys who attend this school. My 3rd grader attend the afterschool program. The only dislike I have for the school is they dont provide the afterschool program for my Kingergardner.

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.
