A truly excellent school. My son is in kindergarten at Macdonough. The teachers are excellent, the staff is so warm and welcoming, the principal is amazing-- he really knows every kid's name. The other kids are fun and well-mannered. I highly recommend this school.

The parents are not involved enough. The art program is very good.

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.
