The teachers really take an individual interest in each child and truly help to make them succeed. They also have many programs to encourage the success of all students. Q

The teachers are helpful but I was not too happy with this school. I see a lot of fundraisers and activities done to collect money but in the last two years have not seen a difference. I don t think they do enough activities for the children. For example, Israel Putnam has an event every week. This weekend was there winter dance. They interact more with the parents and students.

My son is currently in 2nd grade at Nathan Hale. I have found his teacher to be most helpful in the areas where my son needed a little extra help. He loves Nathan Hale, and he loves his teacher. Hats off to you Nathan Hale! Katie V.

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.
