Posted April 11, 2006

I went here last year. Most of the teachers were great. I loved it. It was a bit low-tech, but there were many afterschool programs, Parks & Rec activities, and other programs, But due to the No Child Left Behind act, I didn't feel very challenged. There was the New Britain Gifted and Talented to help with that, though. There were also wonderful rewards for completing homework, though it should be a given.

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.
