The worst school ever....My son was bitten right after signing to this terrible school. Never send your kids there....a lot of bullying problem going on. Even the principal himself is not able to help you if something happens to your children.

South, now known as bellizzi middle is a great school,a school that makes the children feel at home,safe and loved.Bellizzi dedicates time to listen to the children regardless of race a school with no discrimination.A school that makes children feel in family because that is what bellizzi is family. I would give it a 10 for the dedication and concern of making sure that every child learn, also the multi activities it has, and the afterschool program. A good school to put your children in. This school is also under survellience camera so your child be safe at all time.

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.
