The integrated day program brgins art, music, language, math and science all together in ways that instill a love of learning in the children. The teachers and staff are a great team and they really make everyone feel welcomed and respected.

I love the confidence it has give my daughter. If you ever told me that she would be speaking in front of an audience with a microphone I would not have believed you. John Lyman is a HOT school so there is always someone there integrating the arts into their learning experience.

John Lyman is an excellent school with excellent leadership. The mixed grades are a bit to get used to but the students do very well here. You can see the dedication of every teacher with how much they put into the activities. Students may come out a bit weak in math skills, but from my child's experience he was able to more than make up for this. If you want to choose, Lyman is it.

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.
