LMES is a great school. Both of my children have attended there and have excelled. I have yet to meet a teacher in the school that didn't love teaching. I love the school and so do my kids.

Before retiring principal gusenberg gave a new school in a small community a firm foundation in flourishing. Fourh child in and no complaints, minus a speech they didn't play from our president, but that is political. Overall gives a great chance for children to dream

The teachers at this school truly care about their students and work very hard to provide an academically stimulating environment. Expectations and accountability standards are set very high with homework and reading assigned nightly. Little has been spared in providing new, state of the art facilities which are enjoyed by students, parents and teachers alike.

This school has no challenging activities for gifted students. The principal said 'there is no gifted program here.' Therefore, if your child is gifted, even though it is a state requirement to provide individualized instruction, you will not get it here. The school is mostly interested in test scores.

Wonderful, nurturing school. Beautiful facility, wonderful teachers and great parent involvement! I have been very happy with the principal and how he has handled things with our kids over the years. He is very involved with the kids. Staff seems to know all the kids names. You definitely feel the love! The teachers put so much extra time into their school day for planning. Many are there way before the school day starts and leave many hours after the day ends.

Great school system. Newest in system. Principal could be stronger leader. My son was very happy here. Wish they introduced foreign language though. Excellent parental involvement.

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.
