Unfortunately most U.S. schools are shackled by their budgets and limited intellectual growth content for our children - Here at Mystic Middle however I find that they rise above the mediocrity of that system and offer more, as a whole to the students. Better than other local schools.

Excellent school. The principal, the dean of students, the teachers all care about the students and foster a comfortable environment for them to learn in. The music programs are absolutely stallar. We love Mystic Middle.

Mystic Middle has great programs and extracurricular activities. The principal is highly involved and liked by students, parents and teachers. Staff retention is very high. Test results, parent engagement and student performance are high, even by best of Connecticut standards.

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.
