This School is an excellent one. EVEYONE from the principle to teachers, security, janitors and EVEYONE in between are so involved in the students education and safety. My child loves going to school and her teachers and the other staff members . Which impressed me on how much they genuinely care.

Maria Sanchez Elementary school is a small neighborhood school, located in the heart of the Latino community in Hartford, Ct. As principal of the school since 2007 I am very proud of our progress in the CMT testing and currently under the No Child Left Behind legislation, we have made SAFE HARBOR. Our school opened in 1992 and although we have a high number of second language learners and a full Bilingual Education program, we also have regular mainstream classes and our students participate in the city wide Science Fair, having won first prize in 2010 in the Third Grade category. We offer a full academic program that includes music, art, PE, Media and a partnership with Hartford Performs, ING, MI Casa, Girl Scouts, an active PTO and a new School Council. Our children are safe inside our building and parents benefit from being able to access a full service clinic with dental and vision services, as well as Social Workers, Special Ed staff, and a Pre K program that has been recognized as one of the top ones in the city of Hartford. Our staff is highly qualified and has been here for an average of 12-20 years of service.

Sanchez focuses on teaching English reading and writing skills to dominantly Spanish and bi-lingual speaking students. However, for native English speaking children, this school offers very little. There is very little enrichment, no gifted program and the school battles disciplinary issues constantly. Bullying is a concern. In short, Sanchez school is a 'failing school' with little support, funding and resources. There are some excellent teachers there, but basically the school faces all the problems associated with the typical inner city, failing 'ghetto' school.

About the tests


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