As a substitute teacher, I have observed several classes from 6-8th grade over a three month span. Teacher/parent collaboration is more important and essential than ever. Parents need to know that Teachers need their support more than ever and that the foundation of the home is the most important component in a child's life.

Horrible! Can't wait for my child to graduate. The new principle thought she would make changes for the better and the school is worse. I have never heard a bunch of kids talk to faculty the way they do and just get away with it. Horrible!

I am a student who attended Roosevelt Middle School and many of the students who are in my class of E.C. Goodwin don't know many of the things that I know and I would like to congratulate the faculty, teacher, and school itself for doing a great job in teaching..... Thank You!!!!

I have a daughter in 8th grade and,I have to say that I can't wait for my daughter to graduate. Just recently I had an arguement with one of the staff members because they were taking my daughter out of her math class(which she alredy struggles in) and placing her in spanish. Spanish class happens to be important to the both of us but her academic classes concern me a lot more.

I have a child here in the 7th grade. Overall, she is a good student. Always had great grades and never in any problems. This is the first year ever that she has had a problem with her grades. The school frequently has substitute teachers and I have found that the teachers are quick to throw blame around as to why the kids are not doing well. Too many disruptive kids in class, class sizes are too big, etc are just some of the excuses. Frankly, I find that part of the problem is the lack of follow up on behalf of the teachers. Missing assignments due to absence are the kids responsibility. We as parents find out there are missing assignments when they are in danger of failing a class. Much too late. I am currently looking to move my child from the NB school system.

I had children of my own who went to this school and I found it was a good school. Now I have a grandchild going to the same school, what can I say. Is this a great school or what. Keep up the good work faculty members. In three more years I will have another grandchild going there.

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.
