My daughter has never been more miserable coming home from school! Most of the teachers are concerned with how they look when CAPT testing results come out. Mrs. Forish is the principle and doesnt have a clue what is going in! If you hate your child, send them here, otherwise steer clear and send them to Maple Hill!

When my son came to this school he had to go through testing for special needs. He transferred from another town. They got him the help he needed. This school is fantastic. The teachers are warm and caring. I wish he could still go to this school but unfortunatly he's too old.

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.
