Imagine working to make your children successful! Who ever heard of such a thing? This is an excellent elementary school that I attended as a child. I had an academic advantage over other children heading into RHAM milddle school. As I moved through high school, there were a very high percentage of students from Marlborough in honors and advanced courses, which I do not believe was a coincidence. I would recommend this school wholeheartedly to anyone and will be proud to send my children here.

I have been very disappointed in this school system for years. Unfortunately, this was the only school he could attend with out moving. I don't think the teachers worry about teaching. It seems to me they focus on sending home tons of homework and having their parents teach the kids. Often my child comes home with work that hasn't been presented yet. I think the scores come from parents who work hard to make their children successful.

I have had children at this school for the past 11 years! Excellent, small town school. Very involved parent community. Excellent teachers! Recently all new administration, doing excellent job. Town, for the most part really supports the school. Would highly reccomend sending children here if it is option. Won "Best Elementary School in CT", 2 years ago!

Good school now that it's newly renovated and finally will have a hot lunch program. Most teachers my daughter has had have been very good academically; emotionally so-so. She's having a great time so far this year with her first male teacher in six years! A little top heavy, administratively. Overall, I am pleased with the school experience.

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.
