Between the staff, the parents, and the community, this is a fantastic school. My daughter is enrolled in the pre-kindergarten class. I like how they break the program up and have the 3 year olds go in the morning for half a day, and 4 yr olds in the afternoon. Their constant communication is effective and the rewards are reaped by the children.

Aministration and teaching staff are great. The aids and paraprofessionals are willing to go the extra mile for student and parent.

I found this to be an excellent school. They encourage parents to be involved and the principal,who unfortunately is transferring to another school at the end of the 2004-05 school year is wonderful. He genuinely cares about the kids and rewards positive behavior each day.

About the tests


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.
