The staff at Rawson need to get it together! They need to improve their disciplinary methods. Who is really in control? In the last couple of years the school has not been doing as well as it was when my child first transfered there! There needs to be better communication between the staff and the parents! More focus should be on the lesson and not whether the child has on the correct color uniform for what ever grade they are in. It would be nice to learn about events, trips, class pictures ect in advance and I dont mean two days prior to when its happening! Parents are not getting a proper notice. hope this school year is a better one than last year, Rawson has so much potential!

This is very untrue. This school is one of many Hartford Public Schools that are in need of improvement due to its lacking test scores over the past few years. So much so that they have to allow parents to transfer their children into better schools at the start of the new semester. This website is either really old or the research done was very poor.

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.
