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.

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 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.
