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 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.
